  1. REDUCTION OF INDOOR AIR POLLUTION BY MEMBRANE STRIPPING OOF WATERBORNE RADON GAS

    SBC: Arete Technologies            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1990 Environmental Protection Agency
  2. TOTAL OXIDATION OF CONTAMINATED LEVEL VOLATILE ORGANIC HYDROCARBONS OVER AEROGEL CATALYSTS

    SBC: Electrochem, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I PROJECT IS TO STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF A CATALYTIC OXIDATION OF CONTAMINANT LEVEL VOLATILE ORGANIC HYDROCARBONS USING NOVEL AEROGEL CATALYSTS.THE ADVANTAGES OF USING THE PROPOSED CATALYTIC COMBUSTION PROCESS IS THAT IT CAN OPERATE AT A LOWER TEMPERATURE THAN THE CONVENTIONAL INCINERATORS THUS CONTROLLING NOX EMISSIONS. IT WILL ALSO BE MORE EFFICIENT IN OBTAINING VIRTU ...

  3. DRY SCRUBBING OF SOX AND NOX OVER LANTHANIDE-OXYGEN- SULFUR COMPOUNDS

    SBC: Electrochem, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

  4. DETERMINATION OF SOLIDS RESIDENCE TIME DISTRIBUTION IN CONTINUOUSLY FED, SHALLOW FLUIDIZED BEDS: TOWARDS THE DEVELOPMENT OF A FUEL EFFICIENT CONTAMINATED SOILS INCINERATOR

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    SOILS CONTAMINATED WITH TOXIC CHEMICALS POSE A THREAT TO THEENVIRONMENT, IN THAT THE CHEMICALS MAY BE SLOWLY RELEASED AND INCORPORATED INTO THE FOOD CHAIN. HIGH TEMPERATURE, THERMAL OXIDATION OFFERS ONE METHOD OF DECONTAMINATING THESESOILS. HOWEVER, BECAUSE OF THE NORMALLY LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF CONTAMINANTS ABSORBED ON SOILS, FUEL IS REQUIRED TO HEAT THE SOIL MASS TO TEMPERATURES NEAR 2,000 F. CUR ...

  5. A PROPOSED CONTINUOUS MONITOR FOR STACK EMISSION OR PROCESS EFFLUENTS WITH RECORDER/CONTROLLER FUNCTION

    SBC: Moduspec Co.            Topic: N/A

    A SOURCE ANALYZER IS DESCRIBED THAT CAN MONITOR STACKS AND PROCESS STREAMS AND EXERCISE COMPUTER FEEDBACK CONTROL TO OPTIMIZE COMBUSTION OR OTHER PROCESSES TO MINIMIZE POLLUTION. THE PROPOSED MONITOR EMPLOYS THE OPTICAL TECHNIQUE OF IR GAS FILTER CORRELATION FOR ALL SPECIES, USESEXTRACTIVE SAMPLING BY MEANS OF A PROBE, IS SMALL IN SIZE, RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE, AND CAN BE CONTROLLED BY AN INTERNALO ...

    SBIR Phase II 1990 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. TRACE METAL AEROSOL CONTROL IN INCINERATORS

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    INCINERATION OF MOST INDUSTRIAL WASTES, INCLUDING MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE, RESULTS IN THE EMISSION OF POTENTIALLY TOXIC TRACE METAL AEROSOLS. MOST OF THE TRACE METAL SPECIES IN THE WASTE FEED, SUCH AS LEAD, CROMIUM, MERCURY AND ARSENIC, COMPLETELY VOLATILIZE IN THE COMBUSTION ZONE, AND SUBSEQUENTLY CONDENSE AND CONCENTRATE IN THE SUBMICRON-SIZEDASH PARTICLES (FUME). THIS SIZE FRACTION CANNOT BE REMO ...

  7. ATOMIC LAYER EPITAXY OF DIAMOND

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

    THE ABILITY TO GROW HETEROSPITAXIAL THIN FILMS OF DIAMOND IS LIMITED IN PART BY THE PROPENSITY OF SUCH FILMS TO NUCLEATE AT MULTIPLE SITES WITHOUT PROPER ORIENTATION. WE PROPOSE TO DEVELOP A 2-DIMENSIONAL GROWTH PROCESS BY ATOMIC LAYER EPITAXY (ALE) USING ADVANCED MOLECULAR BEAM TECHNIQUES. THE PHASE I RESEARCH WILL FOCUS ON DETERMINING THE MICROCHEMISTRY OF DEPOSITION PROCESSES AND THUS ALLOW FOR ...

  8. PASSIVE NON-COOPERATIVE TARGET RECOGNITION SENSOR

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

    THE POLARIZATION CHARACTERISTICS OF AIRCRAFT INFRARED SIGNATURES HAVE BEEN STUDIED AS A MEANS TO ENHANCE THE PERFORMANCE OF LONG RANGE PASSIVE INFRARED DETECTION SYSTEMS OPERATING IN THE PRESENCE OF CLUTTER. THESE STUDIES ALSO GENERATED EVIDENCE THAT THE AMOUNT AND ANGLE OF POLARIZATION AS WELL AS ITS SPATIAL DISTRIBUTION ARE UNIQUE BETWEEN DIFFERENT TYPES AND CLASSES OF AIRCRAFT. IT MAY BE POSSIB ...

  9. A NEW NUCLEAR SURVEY INSTRUMENT WITH IMAGING CAPABILITY

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MODERN MILITARY OPERATIONS HAVE MADE IT NECESSARY FOR COMMANDERS TO HAVE RADIOLOGICAL INFORMATION CONCERNING NUCLEAR CONTAMINATION OF OCCUPIED AREAS. THIS INCREASING NEED FOR MORE ACCURATE AND RELIABLE INFORMATION FOR THE PURPOSE OF LOCATING AND IDENTIFYING POTENTIALLY HAZARDOUS NUCLEAR SOURCES, HAS LED TO NEED FOR IMPROVED INSTRUMENTATION. IN PARTICULAR, A NUCLEAR SURVEY INSTRUMENT WITH IMAGING C ...

  10. A RARE-EARTH CRYOGENIC PROJECTOR USING HIGH-TC SUPERCONDUCTORS

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A RARE-EARTH, MAGNETOSTRICTIVE, MATERIAL, TB(X)DY(1-X) (0.50.6), OPERATING AT CRYOGENIC TEMPERATURES, CAN STORE AND RELEASE TWENTY TIMES THE ENERGY OF PIEZOELECTRIC MATERIALS, AND FIVE TIMES THE ENERGY OF THE BEST ROOM-TEMPERATURE, MAGNETOSTRICTIVE, RARE-EARTH ALLOYS. THIS MAKES IT IDEAL FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF LOW-FREQUENCY, HIGH-POWER, UNDERWATER, ACOUSTIC PROJECTORS. BROAD-BAND, LOW-Q, PROJECTO ...
