  1. Nano-Enhanced Composite Electrodes for Electrostatic Precipitators

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: TopicF

    With the increasing volatility of petroleum and natural gas resources, small coal-fired boilers have become increasingly more attractive for steam and power generation in several industries. This switch to small-scale, coal-fired plants is expected to continue, and increases the need for clean coal utilization technology. The U.S. Energy Policy Act includes support for a clean coal technology init ...

  5. Enabling Electrostatic Painting of Automotive Polymers with Low Cost Carbon Nanofibers

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Polymer composites are widely used for automotive body panels to save weight, increase fuel efficiency, and eliminate corrosion. However, unlike metals, structural polymers are not electrically conductive; thus, they are not amenable to the industry standard technique of electrostatic spray painting (ESP). Current methods for adapting polymers to ESP pose serious environmental and economic chall ...

    SBIR Phase I 2006 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. Nano-Enhanced Composite Electrodes for Electrostatic Precipitators

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Electrostatic precipitators (ESPs) are a key pollution control device in air pollution control devices for small oil and coal-fired industrial boilers. ESPs can operate with an efficiency of 98 to 99% for the removal of mercury and fly ash from the flue gas stream. With an electrostatic precipitator fly ash particles are charged electrically as the flue gas passes through the precipitator allowi ...

    SBIR Phase I 2009 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. Enabling Electrostatic Painting of Automotive Polymers with Low Cost Carbon Nanofibers

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: N/A

    Applied Sciences, Inc. (ASI) investigated the use on inexpensive carbon nanofiber (CNF) to impart electrical conductivity to polymer systems to allow the use of electrostatic painting (ESP) techniques to paint these polymers in the same manner as metals without the need for a solvent- based primer coat. The production of polymer composites that can be electrostatically painted with no additional ...

    SBIR Phase II 2007 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. The Use of Recycled Solid Automotive Paint Wastes as Ingredients in Automotive Sealant Products

    SBC: Aster Inc.            Topic: N/A

    About 75,000,000 lbs of paint sludge is generated by the U.S. automotive industry each year. This type of waste and (similar streams from other industries) make significant contributions to landfills. The solution proposed by ASTER, Inc., proven feasible during the Phase I of this work, is to recycle the paint sludge into ingredients for automotive sealants. This new approach results in waste g ...
