  1. Remote Sensing Instrument for On-Road Heavy-Duty Diesel NOx and PM Emissions

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 2001 Environmental Protection Agency
  2. Reducing Diesel Soot with an Atmospheric Plasma Metallic Filter

    SBC: Atmospheric Glow Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The majority of buses, heavy-duty fleet vehicles, and construction and farm machinery are equipped with diesel engines. The diesel engine is an energy-efficient machine, but its exhaust emissions present a serious health and environmental problem. Drastic reductions of exhaust soot have been mandated throughout the world, including the recent U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) mandate to r ...

  3. Portable Engine Emission Analyzer

    SBC: BOSTON MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N/A

    A strategic need exists for harsh-environment, foul-resistant engine exhaust emission sensors. No presently available devices combine the requisite sensitivity and selectivity to hydrocarbons, CO, CO2, and NOx with thermal and chemical robustness, low power drain, rapid response, and reasonable cost. Boston MicroSystems, Inc., proposes to develop a hand-held portable engine emissions analyzer that ...

  4. Reduced Cost Sewer Pipe Relining Using Ultrasonic Lamination

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    During the Phase I program, Foster-Miller developed techniques based on Ultrasonic Tape Lamination (UTL) for joining of plasticized PVC sewer pipe liner. This effort was undertaken in response to a need for environmentally sound and cost-effective methods for rehabilitation of aging water and sewerage pipe rehabilitation infrastructure. Ultrasonic lamination has several significant advantages over ...

  5. Recycled Materials for Repair and Rehabilitation of Aging Concrete Structures

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Exterior wrapping of concrete columns initially was developed for seismic reinforcement in high-risk areas such as California. As the technology has gained acceptance, it is being considered for use in extending column life, reducing corrosion, and preventing spalling. All composite wrapping systems utilize some form of a fiber-reinforced thermoset material. For several reasons discussed below, fi ...

  6. High Altitude Fuel Injection

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Mide Technology Corporation proposes to develop a fuel injection system for automotive combustion control. The design is composed of a fast-acting piezoelectric actuator to operate a fuel injection valve and emission sensors located in the exhaust, both used in concert with a rapid-learning control algorithm to reduce engine NOx, hydrocarbon (HC), and particulate emissions without sacrificing fuel ...

  7. A Process for On-Line Quality Control of Recycled Plastic Flake

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    Generally, it is accepted that for plastics recycling to be economically viable in the long term, recycled resins must be competitive with virgin resins. To compete with virgin material, new applications must be made available for recycled resins. Such applications will require that the recycled resin be of a high purity level. Thus, many processors are requiring ever-tightening contamination limi ...

  8. Sensor Fusion for Contaminant Detection and Removal from Plastic Recycle Streams

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    Post-consumer plastics have become a tremendous burden upon our waste disposal system. Although plastics constitute only about 9 percent by weight of municipal solid waste, they occupy approximately one-fourth the volume of the waste stream. The U.S. EPA recommends recycling of plastics as the best solution to the problem. However, contamination of plastics within the recycle stream by foreign mat ...

  9. Fresnel Sapphire Split Prism Spectrometer for Engine Emission Diagnostics

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OPTRA, Inc., is proposing a low-resolution ( 15 nm) Fresnel sapphire split-prism spectrometer specifically tailored to the identification of molecular species present in the emissions from an engine source. The proposed approach will examine the 3-5.5 ¿m spectral region, allowing for the extraction of concentration information of CO2, CO, NO, HCs, and particulate matter. Sapphire was chosen bec ...

  10. Innovative Ultraviolet Light Source for Disinfection of Drinking Water

    SBC: Phoenix Science & Technology            Topic: N/A

    New regulations for drinking water treatment are leading to alternatives to chlorine disinfection. As a result, the use of ultraviolet (UV) light for disinfection is growing rapidly. The disinfection capability of commercial UV systems is limited by available mercury lamp technology. Phoenix Science & Technology's innovative Surface Discharge (SD) UV lamp is a promising candidate to both improve t ...
