  1. "MITIGATION OF ACID RAIN AND OXIDANT IMPACTS ON CROPS AND FORESTS UTILIZING MARINE EXTRACTS"

    SBC: Maricultura Inc            Topic: N/A

    RECENT ASSESSMENTS ESTIMATE U.S. CROP LOSSES FROM ELEVATED OZONE LEVEL AND OTHER OXIDANTS (SULFUR DIOXIDE, NITROGEN DIOXIDE) TO BE AS MUCH AS $5 BILLION ANNUALLY. ADDITIONALLY,SEVERE FOREST DAMAGE MAY RESULT FROMPOLLUTION-RELATED OXI- DANTS PARTICULARLY IN EUROPE WHERE THERE HAS BEEN A DRAMATICDECLINE IN FOREST ECOSYSTEMS OVER THE PAST SIX YEARS. THIS RESEARCH IS DIRECTED AT THE MITIGATION OF SUCH ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. An Electroanalytical Alumina Sensor for Use in Aluminum Production

    SBC: Oxley Research, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Improved control of dissolved alumina concentration in the molten cryolite of Hall-Heroult cells is an important need in the aluminum smelting industry. A major incentive is avoiding "anode effect" that occurs when the cryolite bath's alumina content becomes too low (e.g., less than 2.2 w/o) to support normal electrolysis. Anode effect reflects production and accumulation of perfluorocarbons at th ...

  5. Cryptosporidium Detection System

    SBC: CIENCIA INC            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I objective is to develop a compact, low-cost, easy-to-use system for the rapid detection of Cryptosporidium oocysts. Two key innovations provide the foundation for Ciencia, Inc.'s system: (1) a dielectrophoretic field-flow-fractionation method to replace current filtering and centrifugation methods to concentrate the sample and remove nontarget organisms or nonbiological debris, and (2) ...

  6. DEVELOPMENT OF A RETROFIT IN SITU THREE POINT AUDIT DEVICE FFOR TESTING OF LINEARITY AND CALIBRATION OF COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE IN-STACK TRANSMISSOMETERS

    SBC: Eastern Technical Associates            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1985 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. Exhaust Gas Monitoring for Process Control and Pollution Reduction in Semiconductor Manufacturing

    SBC: On-Line Technologies, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Perfluorocarbons (PFCs), known greenhouse gases, are used widely in semiconductor manufacturing. Several options for reducing the emissions of PFCs are being considered, including: (1) optimizing the process; (2) reducing the nonproduction operation of the fabrication tool; (3) recovering and recycling the unused PFCs; (4) using alternative etch gases; and (5) postprocess abatement (combustion). T ...

  8. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...
