  1. 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 ...

  3. FEASIBILITY OF BIODEGRADATION OF WASTE LIQUID COAL TAR

    SBC: Bioremediation Consulting,            Topic: N/A

    COAL TAR IS A BY-PRODUCT OF THE COAL GASIFICATION PROCESS USED WIDELY BETWEEN 1820 AND 1950 TO PRODUCE A NATURAL GAS SUBSTITUTE. DURING THAT TIME, BILLIONS OF GALLONS OF TAR WERE PRODUCED AT MORE THAN 1500 GAS MANUFACTURING FACILITIESLOCATED THROUGHOUT THE U.S. A LARGE PORTION OF THIS WASTE TAR REMAINS IN STORAGE OR WAS DISPOSED OF BY INJECTION INTO SUBSURFACE SITES. COAL TAR IS A MIXTURE OF HYDRO ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. MODIFICATION

    SBC: Eng, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    RECENT PROMISING DEVELOPMENTS IN THE PETROLEUM INDUSTRY "PROFILE MODIFICATION TECHNOLOGY" (PMT) WILL BE EVALUATED FOR THEIR APPLICATION TO LEAKING LANDFILL SITES. PROFILE FLOW MODIFICATION TREATMENTS ARE USED TO INCREASE FLOW RESISTANCE IN HIGH PERMEABILITY AREAS FAR (75 FEET TO AS MUCH AS 1000 FEET) FROM THE INJECTION WELLBORE. THESE TREATMENTS CAN WITHSTAND FORMATION PRESSURES AND TEMPERATURES U ...

  8. Nontoxic Sparker Control of Zebra Mussels

    SBC: Phoenix Science & Technology            Topic: N/A

    Following their inadvertent introduction to Lake St. Clair, zebra mussels quickly spread throughout the Great Lakes and into many inland lakes, rivers, and canals. Zebra mussels clog intake screens, pipes, and cooling systems and pose a serious problem. Chlorine injection effectively controls zebra mussels, but also produces toxic byproducts, some of which are carcinogenic. Furthermore, regulatory ...

  9. Novel Detection Interface for Gas Chromatography/Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopic Analysis

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Polestar Technologies, Inc., proposes to develop a field-portable gas chromatography/ Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (GC/FTIR) instrument that is based on a novel infrared detection interface for the hyphenated GC/FTIR analysis technique. The new GC/FTIR interface will have substantial advantages over the conventional infrared lightpipe interface in improved detection sensitivity, reduced ...

  10. OUTFLOWS AS WELL AS ON RESIDENTIAL SEPTIC SYSTEM LEACHING FIELDS

    SBC: Waste Process Technology            Topic: N/A

    STUDIES INDICATE THAT STRAIGHT SEPTAGE INTRODUCTION TO ACT IVATED SLUDGE PLANTS CAUSES SHOCK LOADING AND SUBSEQUENT VIOLATION OF EFFLUENT PERMIT STANDARDS. THIS PROJECT INTENDS TO EVALUATE DEWATERING OF SLUDGE BY THEUSE OF WIRE CLOTH SCREENING TO DETERMINE IF THE DEWATERED SLUDGE MEETS LANDFILL ACCEPTABILITY STANDARDS. IT INTENDS A ALSO TO DETERMINE IF THE RETURN OF THE FILTRATE TO THE S SEPTIC TA ...
