  1. IMPROVED POLLUTION CONTROL USING RAMAN SCATTERING GAS ANALYSIS

    SBC: Albion Instruments            Topic: N/A

    REAL TIME ON-LINE ANALYSIS OF STACK GASSES IS NECESSARY TO MONITOR EFFLUENTS AND TO PERMIT FEEDBACK CONTROL OF COMBUSTION PROCESS AND DOWN STREAM SCRUBBER SYSTEMS. MULTIMEDIA POLLUTION ANALYSIS REQUIRES MULTIPLE SENSOR TECHNOLOGY WITH PRESENT COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTATION. CURRENTLY, COMPLEX ANALYTICAL SYSTEMS MUSTBE ASSEMBLED THAT ARE EXPENSIVE, PRONE TO DRIFT, AND DIFFICULT TO OPERATE A ...

  2. OPTRODE DEVELOPMENT FOR REAL-TIME ENVIRONMENTAL MONITORING

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    THIS RESEARCH INVESTIGATES THE FEASIBILITY OF DEVELOPING AN INNOVATIVE OPTRODE DEVICE FOR THE DETECTION, IDENTIFICATION, AND QUANTIFICATION OF TRACE LEVELS OF CHEMICAL CONTAMINANTS IN WATER. THIS FIBER OPTIC BASED INSTRUMENT WILL HAVE A RESPONSE DETECTOR AND CAN MEASURE CONCENTRATIONS OF CONTAMINANTS AT PARTS PER BILLION CONCENTRATIONS. IT IS ALSO ANTICIPATED THAT THIS INSTRUMENT WILL BE ABLE TO I ...

  3. HEAVY METAL REMOVAL AT THE PPB LEVEL FROM CULINARY WATER USING A NOVEL MACROCYCLE-SILICA GEL DEVICE

    SBC: IBC ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: N/A

    IT IS DESIRABLE TO HAVE A MTHOD FOR EFFICIENT, COST EFFEC- TIVE, AND SIMULTANEOUS REMOVAL OF PB(II), AG(I), CD(II) AND HG(II) FROM POTABLE WATER TO LEVELS WELL BELOW THEIR EPA LIMITS. SUCH A METHOD COULD BE USED BY BOTH MUNICIPAL WATER WASTE TREATMENT PLALNTS. THE INTERACTION OF THE MACROCYCLE TETRAAZA-18CROWN WITH THE METALS OF INTEREST IS OF SUFFI- CIENT STRENGTH AND SELECTIVITY TO REMOVE THE ME ...

  4. MICROBIAL REMOVAL OF ORGANIC SULFUR FROM COAL

    SBC: J.k. Research            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. POSSESSES HUGE COAL RESERVES, BUT SULFUR DIOXIDE (SO2) RELEASED UPON COMBUSTION IS A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO ACID RAIN. SIGNIFICANT ADVANCES HAVE BEEN MADE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF MICROBIAL PROCESSES FOR PRECOMBUSTION REMOVALOF INORGANIC SULFUR FROM COAL. THIOBACILLUS AND SULFOLOBUS SP. HAVE BEEN MOST FREQUENTLY EMPLOYED. THEY ARE OPTIMALLY ADAPTED TO FUNCTION AT A PH BELOW 3 AND OFTEN AT ELEV ...

  6. ADDITIVES FOR NOX EMMISSIONS CONTROL FROM FIXED SOURCES

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SEVERAL EXHAUST GAS NOX ABATEMENMT PROCESSES EXIST BASED ON HETEROGENEOUS REACTION OF A REDUCED NITROGEN CONTAINING ADDITIVE SUCH AS NH3. THESE EXISTING PROCESSES ARE NOT ADEQUATETO MEET PROPOSED NOX EMISSIONS REGULATIONS FOR MOST RETROFITPOWER PLANT STACKS AND INCINERATORS. THE INVESTIGATORS PRO-POSE TO TEST COMBINATIONS OF ADDITIVES AND CATALYSTS THAT HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO LEAD TO A NEW PROCESS ...

    SBIR Phase II 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. CONTINUOUS MONITORING FOR N2O AND NO2

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    NITROUS OXIDE, N2O, IS A STABLE GAS THAT CONTRIBUTES TO BOTHTHE GREENHOUSE EFFECT PROBLEM AND OZONE DEPLETION IN THE STRATOSPHERE. AMBIENT N2O LEVELS ARE INCREASING FROM UNKNOWN SOURCES. NO CONTINUOUS, ON-LINE INSTRUMENT IS COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE TO MEASURE N2O FROM FOSSIL FUEL COMBUSTION SOURCES TO ASSESS AND CONTROL N2O EMISSIONS. PSI TECHNOLOGY COMPANY PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A CONTINUOUS, ON-LINE ...

  9. PLASTIC SOLID WASTE REDUCTION BY USE OF BIODEGRADABLE REINFORCING FILLERS

    SBC: Southeastern Reduction Co            Topic: N/A

    ORGANIC BIODEGRADABLE FILLERS ARE MANUFACTURED TO OPTIMIZE PARTICLE SHAPE FOR REINFORCEMENT VALUE IN POLYETHYLENE. FILLER IS ALSO "SURFACE MODIFIED" TO ENHANCE COMPATIBILITY AND BOND STRENGTH AT THE FILLER-POLYMER INTERFACE. THREE DIFFERENT PARTICLE SIZE FILLERS ARE USED IN POLYMER SUBSTITUTION RATES OF 10, 20, 30, AND 40% DURING COMPOUNDING. OPTIMUM COMPOUNDING AND MOLDING CONDITIONS AREDETERMINE ...
