  1. Development of a Simple, Robust, and Inexpensive Alkalinity Sensor

    SBC: Technology Specialists            Topic: TopicE

    The increasing use of membrane filtration in water treatment application has focused greater attention on the need to optimize chemical pretreatment to minimize membrane fouling; for example, the City of Minneapolis draws water from the Mississippi River and has found that control of lime-softening is critical to protect its new ultrafiltration plant. Alkalinity is a fundamental and widely measure ...

  2. Development of an In Situ Thermal Extraction Detection System (TEDS) for Rapid, Accurate, Quantitative Analysis of Environmental Pollutants in the Subsurface

    SBC: Ion Signature Technology, Inc.            Topic: TopicH

    The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in its publication Technology News and Trends in 2009 featured the Navy's work that saved 6 years and $3 million delineating chlorinated solvent plumes in soil and groundwater. The Navy used EPA's TRIAD process, which incorporates systematic planning, field analytics, and dynamic work strategies, during its hazardous waste site investigation. A direct ...

  3. A PROCESS TO PRODUCE PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARDS WITHOUT GENERATING LIQUID OR SOLID WASTE

    SBC: BH ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OVER 25 BILLION GALLONS OF WASTE WATER ARE PRODUCED EACH YEAR AS BY-PRODUCTS OF CIRCUIT BOARD PRODUCTION. WASTES, INCLUDING COPPER, LEAD, NICKEL, CHROMIUM, DISSOLVED ORGANICSACIDS, CAUSTICS AND CHLORINATED SOLVENTS MUST BE TREATED ANDDISPOSED OF OR RECYCLED. COMPLIANCE WITH ANTI-POLLUTION REGULATIONS HAS BECOME EXTREMELY COSTLY AND INCREASINGLY COMPLEX. A TECHNIQUE IS PROPOSED IN THIS PROJECT FOR ...

  5. RAPID ENZYME IMMUNOASSAY FOR ENVIRONMENTAL CHEMICAL HAZARDS

    SBC: SURMODICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MONITORING ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLES FOR VARIOUS PESTICIDES AND OTHER HAZARDOUS CHEMICALS HAS BECOME NECESSARY INORDER TO PROTECT THE POPULACE FROM THE CARCINOGENIC AND TOXIC EFFECTSOF THESE MATERIALS. THERE IS CONSIDERABLE CONCERN REGARDINGTHE POSSIBILITY OF THE MATERIALS BECOMING INCORPORATED IN FOODS AND IN WATER SUPPLIES DESTINED FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION. SINCE THE COSTS OF DOING ENVIRONMENTAL ANALYS ...

  7. EFFECTS OF COSOLVENT ADDITIONS ON THE BIODEGRADABILIITY OF HIGH MOLECULAR WEIGHT PAH COMPOUNDS IN SOIL

    SBC: Biotrol Inc            Topic: N/A

    ADDITION OF COSOLVENTS TO WATER INCREASES THE SOLUBILITY OF HYDROPHOBIC CONTAMINANTS BY SHIFTING THE ADSORPTION EQUILIBRIUM TO FAVOR HIGHER AQUEOUS PHASE CONCENTRATIONS. INCREASING THEIR WATER SOLUBILITY MAKES CONTAMINANTS MORE ACCESSIBLE FOR BIODEGRADATION. WHILE IT IS OFTEN SPECULATEDTHAT LOW RATES OR LACK OF BIODEGRADATION IS CAUSED BY LOW AQUEOUS SOLUBILITY, NO STUDIES HAVE BEEN PERFORMED TO D ...

    SBIR Phase I 1991 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. RECOVERY OF METALS FROM AQUEOUS WASTE STREAMS VIA ELECTROLYTIC RECOVERY UTILIZING A FLUIDIZED POWDER CATHODE

    SBC: Covofinish Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW SYSTEM FOR THE ELECTROLYTIC RECOVERY OF METALS FROM AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS WITH A UNIQUE ELECTRODE CONFIGURATION IS PROPOSED. THIS SYSTEM WOULD USE A CATHODE CONSISTING OF A LIQUID FLUIDIZED BED OF METAL POWDER, CARBON POWDER, OR METALLIZED PLASTIC BALLS. THE CATHODE SHOULD PROVIDE A SIGNIFICANTLY LARGER SURFACE AREA THAN A STANDARD SOLID CATHODE AND CONSEQUENTLY WILL INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF T ...

  10. "REDUCTION OF DIESEL PARTICULATE EMISSIONS BY ELECTROSTATIC AGGLOMERATION, INERTIAL COLLECTION AND REBURNING"

    SBC: Hamilton Maurer International            Topic: N/A

    NEW FEDERAL STANDARDS THAT COME INTO EFFECT IN 1988 WILL REQUIRE HEAVY DUTY DIESEL EXHAUST PARTICULATE EMISSION REDUCTIONS OF APPROXIMATELY 60%. IT HAS BEEN SHOWN THAT APPROXIMATELY 75% OF DIESEL PARTICLES ARE CHANGED DURING COMBUSTION AND COULD BE COLLECTED ON THE SURFACES OF AN ELECTROSTATIC AGGLOMERATOR (ESA). THESE PARTICLES WOULD GROW ON THE SURFACES BY AGGLOMERATION AND BE REENTRAINED INTO T ...
