  2. INTERMEDIATES-

    SBC: Ari Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT WILL STUDY THE REMOVAL OF SOX FROM COM- BUSTION PROCESS FLUE GASES FOLLOWED BY DIRECT CONVERSION TO ELEMENTAL SULFUR, USING CHELATED IRON THAT HAS BEEN REDUCED TO FORM A CHELATE:FES COMPLEX. THE PROCESS WOULD HAVE SALEABLE ELEMENTAL SULFUR AS THE ONLY SIGNIFICANT BYPRODUCT AND WOULD OPERATE WITH THE CHELATED IRON AS A REGENERABLE CATALYTIC REAGENT. THE REACTIONS TO BE EXAMINED IN THIS ...

  3. PREVIOUS RESEARCH HAS INDICATED THAT THE THERMOPHILLIC BACTERIA, SULFOLOBUS ACIDOCALDARIUS, AND POSSIBLY RELATED VARIANTS, CAN REMOVE 75% OF THE SULFUR PRESENT IN HIGH-SULFUR COAL IN 3 TO 4 DAYS USING ELEVATED TEMPERATURES AND ACID CONDITIONS.

    SBC: Coal Biotech Corpon            Topic: N/A

    PREVIOUS RESEARCH HAS INDICATED THAT THE THERMOPHILLIC BACTERIA, SULFOLOBUS ACIDOCALDARIUS, AND POSSIBLY RELATED VARIANTS, CAN REMOVE 75% OF THE SULFUR PRESENT IN HIGH-SULFUR COAL IN 3 TO 4 DAYS USING ELEVATED TEMPERATURES AND ACID CONDITIONS. THIS RESEARCH PROGRAM WILL DETERMINE, USING A BENCH-SCALE, FED-BATCH SYSTEM, THE RATE AND EFFICIENCY OF SULFOLOBUS DESULFURIZATION ON AQUEOUS COAL SLURRIES. ...

  4. A HIGH POWER AND HIGH EFFICIENCY, SPACE BASED, NUCLEAR MDH CYCLE, AND ITS TERRESTRIAL SIMULATION USING A CHEMICAL HEAT SOURCE

    SBC: Coal Tech Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL CHEMICAL FUEL, FIRED COMBUSTOR IS PROPOSED FOR USE AS A LOW COST HEAT SOURCE TO SIMULATE A CLASS OF NUCLEAR REACTORS, INCLUDING THE SOLID CORE, COLLOID CORE, AND GAS CORE NUCLEAR REACTORS, WHICH OPERATE AT PEAK STAGNATION TEMPERATURES BETWEEN 2000-5000OK. SINCE THIS TEMPERATURE RANGE IS COMPATIBLE WITH NON-EQULIBRIUM, MHD GENERATORS, WE ALSO PROPOSE TO DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF USING A ...

  5. COAL CONVERSION IN LOW TEMPERATURE MOLTEN SALTS

    SBC: Energy & Minerals Research            Topic: N/A

    LOW TEMPERATURE MOLTEN SALTS BASED ON AL, FE, AND B ARE KNOWN. RECENTLY, UNIQUE ORGANIC CHEMISTRY HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED IN THESE EUTECTIC MIXTURES. THESE LOW TEMPERATURE EUTECTICS ( 100 DEGREE(C)) ARE ATTRACTIVE MEDIA FOR COAL CONVERSION. THE EUTECTICS SHOULD DISSOLVE LARGE QUANTITIES OF HYDROGEN. BY CONTROLLING THE ACIDITY OF THE MIXTURES, COAL CLEAVAGE REACTIONS SHOULD BE ENHANCED. ETHER CLEAVAG ...

  6. ULTRASONIC GRINDING OF ZEOLITES FOR RADIOACTIVE WATER TREATMENT

    SBC: Energy & Minerals Research            Topic: N/A

    ION EXCHANGE HAS PROVEN USEFUL FOR DECONTAMINATION OF RADIOACTIVE WASTE WATERS. ZEOLITES ARE NOW USED FOR THIS TASK. ZEOLITES SHOW SEVERAL ADVANTAGES OVER OTHER ION EXCHANGE MATERIALS. ION EXCHANGE RATES AND CAPACITY OF ZEOLITES ARE HIGH. ZEOLITES ARE ALSO EASILY HANDLED. HOWEVER, OPTIMUM SIZE OF ZEOLITES FOR ION EXCHANGE IS APPROXIMATELY 10-50 MESH. THE HOT ZEOLITE MUST BE CONVERTED TO A GLASS-LI ...

  7. HIGH EFFICIENCY TAR SAND OIL RECOVERY

    SBC: Energy Recovery Technology            Topic: N/A

    THE COUNTER CURRENT SOLID STREAMS HEAT TRANSFER (CCSSHT) RETORT IS A NEW PROCESS FOR EFFICIENT OIL RECOVERY FROM OUR PLENTIFUL TAR SANDS AND OIL SHALE RESERVES. AS A HEAT RECOVERY SOIL INCINERATOR, IT HAS THE ADVANTAGES OF REDUCED FUEL DEMAND AND LOW COMBUSTION GAS PRODUCT (REDUCING AIR POLLUTION CONTROL NEEDS FOR THE INCINERATOR). THE CCSSHT UNIT IS A SINGLE VESSEL ROTATING KILN THAT (1) PREHEATS ...

  8. THIS PROGRAM WILL STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF PREPARING LOW-ASH AND LOW-SULFUR MICRONIZED COAL BY USING A NOVEL MIXED-LIQUID ATTRITOR.

    SBC: Exportech Company, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROGRAM WILL STUDY THE FEASIBILITY OF PREPARING LOW-ASH AND LOW-SULFUR MICRONIZED COAL BY USING A NOVEL MIXED-LIQUID ATTRITOR. MEASUREMENTS WILL BE MADE AT THE BENCH SCALE IN A BATCH-OPERATED ATTRITOR MODIFIED FOR THIS WORK. THE INNOVATIVE CONCEPT TO BE TESTED WILL INCLUDE: A MAJOR CHANGE IN ATTRITOR DESIGN, THE USE OF NOVEL MIXTURES OF CONVEYING LIQUIDS AS OPPOSED TO A SINGLE LIQUID NOW USED ...

  10. THE SENSITIVITY OF NUCLEAR TRACK-RECORDING PLASTICS MAY BE MODIFIED BY MOLECULAR DESIGN.

    SBC: Frontier Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    THE SENSITIVITY OF NUCLEAR TRACK-RECORDING PLASTICS MAY BE MODIFIED BY MOLECULAR DESIGN. SUBSTITUTION OF GROUPS ADJACENT TO RADIATION-SENSITIVE BONDS AND INTRODUCTION OF NEW CENTRES OF INSTABILITY SHOULD GREATLY INCREASE THE SENSITIVITY TO IONIZING RADIATION. MODIFICATION TO THE CR-39 MONOMER WILL BE CONSIDERED BECAUSE THE POLYMER PRODUCED FROM IT IS BY FAR THE BEST PLASTIC TRACK DETECTOR YET DISC ...
