  1. 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 ...

  2. FEASIBILITY OF COAL TAR BIODEGRADATION BY COMPOSTING

    SBC: Cambridge Analytical Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    COAL TAR IS A BY-PRODUCT OF THE COAL GASIFICATION PROCESS USED BETWEEN 1880 AND 1950 TO PRODUCE A NATURAL GAS SUBSTITUTE. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT SEVERAL BILLION GALLONS OF THIS MATERIAL WERE LAND-DISPOSED AT OVER 1500 SITES IN THE UNITED STATES. THE TAR CONTAINS SEVENTEEN POLYNUCLEAR AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS (PAH) WHICH HAVE BEEN PLACED ON THE EPA PRIORITY POLLUTION LIST AS A RESULT OF THEIR MUTAGENICI ...

  4. NEW METHODS ARE NEEDED THAT RAPIDLY, ECONOMICALLY, AND EFFICIENTLY TREAT WASTEWATERS FOR REUSE OR DISPOSAL.

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    NEW METHODS ARE NEEDED THAT RAPIDLY, ECONOMICALLY, AND EFFICIENTLY TREAT WASTEWATERS FOR REUSE OR DISPOSAL. ESTABLISHED WASTEWATER TREATMENT TECHNOLOGIES ARE EXPENSIVE AND CAN BARELY BE STRETCHED TO MEET THE REQUIREMENTS FOR WATER REUSE IN A PLANT OR DISCHARGE UNDER ENVIRONMENTALLY ACCEPTABLE CONDITIONS. OXIDIZING ORGANIC POLLUTANTS IN SITU ON ELECTROCATALYSTS DRIVEN BY ALTERNATING CURRENT. A MIXE ...

  5. OF EMISSION GAS STREAMS

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

    THE ECONOMIC USEFULNESS AND THE RANGE OF INFOMATION THAT CANBE OBTAINED FORM ON-LINE INFRARED GAS ANALYSIS IS LIMITED SINCE A COMPLEX AND UNRELIABLE EXTRACTIVE SAMPLING SYSTEM ORA DEDICATED SPECTROMETER IS NEEDED AT EACH SENSING POINT IN THE PROCESS. THIS PROGRAM INTENDS TO DEMOSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF TRANSMITTING THE IR SPECTRAL INFORMATION VIA OPTICAL FIBERS DRAWN FROM NEW MATERIALS--HEAVY MET ...

  6. FLUORINE PLASMA MODIFICATION OF FLEXIBLE MEMBRANE LINERS

    SBC: Tekmat Corp            Topic: N/A

    GROUNDWATER CONTAMINATION IS AN INCREASINGLY IMPORTANT CONCERN. THIS RESEARCH ADDRESSES THE TECHNOLOGY ASSOCIATED WITH PREVENTING CONTAMINATION BY IMPROVING THE DESIGN OF POLYMER LINERS USED IN THE CONSTRUCTION OF WASTE DISPOSAL CONTAINMENT SYSTEMS. POLYMERS CURRENTLY USED FOR FLEXIBLE MEMBRANE LINERS WILL BE TREATED WITH A FLUORINE GAS PLASMA TO MODIFY THEIR FURFACES. THE NOVEL MATERIALS PRODUCED ...

  8. RAMAN COVERTED MID-IR LASER

    SBC: ABIOMED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PROPOSAL IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PULSED MID-IR LASER IN THE 3.5 TO 4.1 MICROMETER ATMOSPHERIC TRANSMISSION WINDOW. SUCH SPECTRAL SOURCE IS RELEVANT TO A VARIETY OF TACTICAL APPLICATIONS. THE DF CHEMICAL LASER HAS BEEN THE CHOICE, BUT SUFFERS FROM WASTE FUEL MANAGEMENT PROBLEMS. NO OTHER EFFICIENT DIRECT LASING SOURCE IS AVAILABLE. TO OBTAIN SUCH A SOURCE, WE PROPOSE THE USE O ...

  9. SURVIVAL IN NEAR-FUTURE BATTLEFIELD SCENARIOS MAY DEPEND UPON THE USE OF HOLOGRAPHIC OPTICAL ELEMENTS (HOES) WHOSE UNIQUE FUNCTIONS SERVE: TO PROTECT PERSONNEL FROM EYE-DAMAGING RADIATION, TO SIMPLIFY AIRCRAFT PILOT VISUAL FUNCTION, AND TO PROVIDE VASTLY

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

    SURVIVAL IN NEAR-FUTURE BATTLEFIELD SCENARIOS MAY DEPEND UPON THE USE OF HOLOGRAPHIC OPTICAL ELEMENTS (HOES) WHOSE UNIQUE FUNCTIONS SERVE: TO PROTECT PERSONNEL FROM EYE-DAMAGING RADIATION, TO SIMPLIFY AIRCRAFT PILOT VISUAL FUNCTION, AND TO PROVIDE VASTLY IMPROVED COMMUNITIONS AND SIGNAL PROCESSING SYSTEMS. THESE AND MANY OTHER COMPELLING CAPABILITIES OF HOES CAN ONLY BE EXPLOITED IF THEY CAN BE PR ...

  10. ADVANCED IRCM SOURCE

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

    FUTURE THREAT INFRARED MISSILE SEEKERS WILL POSSESS THE CAPABILITY TO EFFECTIVELY DISCRIMINATE AGAINST IR DECOY FLARES. NEW DECOY FUELS MUST BE IDENTIFIED WHICH PROVIDE A GOOD SPECTRAL MATCH BETWEEN DECOYS AND HELICOPTERS, AND WHICH HAVE IMPROVED TOTAL RADIANT INTENSITY AND BURNING CHARACTERISTICS. IN ADDITION, ALTERNATIVE DECOY CONCEPTS TO THE FREE-GRAIN FLARE MUST BE EVALUATED. IN THIS PROPOSAL, ...
