  2. Industrial Process Pollution Reduction by Development of Amorphous Biogenic Silica to Replace Fumed Silica

    SBC: SioTeX Corporation            Topic: 14NCER1A

    Fumed silica is an important additive in many products including paints, plastics and tires, but it is produced by an energy-intensive costly, toxic and hazardous process. SioTex has developed a superior triple green replacement for fumed silica that produces no toxic waste, uses little energy, and is inexpensive.  Our patent pending technology uses rice hulls, a bio-waste, as the feedstock.  Us ...

  3. Novel Field Deployable Electrochemical Sensor for the Detection and Long-Term Monitoring of Pollutants

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Chlorinated hydrocarbons represent the most prevalent contaminants of groundwater in the country. When released in the subsurface, they tend to persist below the water table, and it can take decades or centuries before slow-moving groundwater completely dissolves accumulations of chlorinated solvent product. Analytical methods currently available for monitoring these compounds require extensive ...

  4. Low Cost Heavy Metals Removal from Hazardous Wastewaters

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Heavy metal species mobilized and released into the environment by technological activities tend to persist indefinitely, circulating and eventually accumulating throughout the food chain, posing a serious threat to the environment, animals, and humans. Typical industrial metal-containing discharges can be considered as point-source emissions, which in turn offer the possibility of feasible remed ...

  7. IMPROVED METHOD FOR HEATING CATALYTIC CONVERTERS OF VEHICLES TO ATTAIN ULTRA-LOW EMISSIONS

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: AirQuality

    THE THREE-WAY CATALYTIC CONVERTER IS THE MOST IMPORTANT DEVICE MAKING TODAY'S AUTOMOBILES COMPLY WITH EXISTING EMISSION LAWS. THE FIRST TWO OR THREE MILES IN A TYPICAL 22-MINUTE, 12-MILE COMUTE IN TODAY'S VEHICLES RESULT IN THE EMISSION OF HALF OF THE TOTAL NON-METHANE HYDROCARBONS, WHICH RESULT IN THE PRODUCTION OF URBAN SMOG, AS WELL AS HALF OF THE TOXIC CO EMISSIONS. THIS OCCURS BECAUSE THE CAT ...

  8. CONTAMINATION OF GROUNDWATER BY TRICHLOROETHYLENE AND OTHER VOLATILE HALOGENATED SOLVENTS REPRESENTS A SERIOUS THREAT TO THE NATION'S DRINKING WATER.

    SBC: Photox International            Topic: N/A

    CONTAMINATION OF GROUNDWATER BY TRICHLOROETHYLENE AND OTHER VOLATILE HALOGENATED SOLVENTS REPRESENTS A SERIOUS THREAT TO THE NATION'S DRINKING WATER. CURRENT TREATMENT TECHNIQUES FOR CONTROLLING SUCH CONTAMINATION ARE LIMITED TO AERATION, ADSORPTION, AND LINKING. A PROMISING ALTERNATIVE IS PHOTOCHEMICAL OXIDATION, BUT THIS PROCESS IS AS YET UNOPTIMIZED, POORLY UNDERSTOOD, AND LARGELY LIMITED. PHOT ...

  9. N/A

    SBC: STARFIRE ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: N/A

    WHEN IT IS NECESSARY TO RAISE A MARINE PIPELINE FOR REPAIR DUE TO TRAWLER SNAG, ETC., THE PIPELINE WILL BUCKLE, AND THEN THE BUCKLE WILL PROPAGATE IF ALL CONDITIONS ARE NOT PROPER. WITH SEVERE BUCKLES, THE PIPE WILL BREAK OPEN ALLOWING THE OIL TO SPILL. THIS CAN BE MINIMIZED BY PERIODICALLY PLACING REMOTELY OPERABLE VALVES IN THE LINE FOR CUTOFF. BUT SOMETIMES THE PIPELINE ROTATES AS IT IS BEING L ...

  10. N/A

    SBC: TRADCO CHEMICAL CORPON            Topic: N/A

    USING RADIO TELEMETRY MODEMS, IS CURRENTLY POSSIBLE. THIS IS NECESSARY BECAUSE LACK OF MONITORING CAUSES INADEQUATE CONTROL OF INTERNAL CORROSION TAKING PLACE INSIDE OFFSHORE PIPELINE SYSTEMS. THE NET RESULT IS PIPELINE FAILURE DUE TOTHE EFFECTS OF CORROSION. THE RESULT OF PIPELINE FAILURE WILL BE AN OIL SPILL IN COASTAL WATERS. AS THE NATION'S OFFSHORE PIPELINE SYSTEM GROWS OLDER, THE NET EFFECTS ...
