  1. Self-Healing Corrosion-Control Coatings: An Enabling Technology To Restore Aging Water Infrastructure and Permit Alternative Water Use for Cooling

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    Problem Statement:  Most of the Nation’s water infrastructure is aging rapidly. Reports indicate that in the major water systems, approximately 30 percent of the pipes are 40 to 80 years old, and approximately 10 percent are more than 80 years old. The water pipes are subject to internal and external corrosion, resulting in pipe leaks and water main breaks. In addition to aging, the rap ...

  2. Environmentally Safe Silane Technology for Adhesion of Rubber to Tire Cord Steel

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

    Strong and durable bonds between rubber and metals are important in many industries. The largest single commercial application is bonding of steel tire cords to sulfur-vulcanized natural rubber (NR) compounds. The current process for bonding steel tire cords to NR compounds requires the plating of brass on the individual filaments. This brass alloy is applied on the running wire as it is being dra ...

  3. IMPROVED POLLUTION CONTROL USING RAMAN SCATTERING GAS ANALYSIS

    SBC: Albion Instruments            Topic: N/A

    REAL TIME ON-LINE ANALYSIS OF STACK GASSES IS NECESSARY TO MONITOR EFFLUENTS AND TO PERMIT FEEDBACK CONTROL OF COMBUSTION PROCESS AND DOWN STREAM SCRUBBER SYSTEMS. MULTIMEDIA POLLUTION ANALYSIS REQUIRES MULTIPLE SENSOR TECHNOLOGY WITH PRESENT COMMERCIALLY AVAILABLE INSTRUMENTATION. CURRENTLY, COMPLEX ANALYTICAL SYSTEMS MUSTBE ASSEMBLED THAT ARE EXPENSIVE, PRONE TO DRIFT, AND DIFFICULT TO OPERATE A ...

  4. SLUDGE SOLIDS

    SBC: John Brown Assoc Inc.            Topic: N/A

    MUNICIPAL WASTE TREATMENT PRODUCES SLUDGES RICH IN COMPLEX ORGANIC CHEMICALS THAT SHOULD BE CONSIDERED AS A CHEMICAL RAW MATERIAL AND RESOURCE ANALOGOUS TO WOOD PULP, AG AGRICULTURAL WASTES, OR PETROLEUM. CURRENT DISPOSAL P PRACTICES OF LANDFILLING, OCEAN DISPOSAL AND EVEN INCINERAR ATION DISREGARD THESE VALUES AND AT BEST RECOVER ENERGY (ANDPOSSIBLY METALS). IT IS PROPOSED TO CARRY OUT SEVERAL CL ...

  5. Innovative Oxidation Treatment for Removal of MTBE From Drinking Water Using a Combined Photocatalytic Reactor and Ozone Generator

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Oxygenates such as methyl tertiary butyl ether (MTBE) have been used in the United States as octane enhancers in gasoline and to boost the oxygen content of reformulated gasoline, which was a requirement of the Clean Air Act. MTBE has found its way into lakes, underground aquifers, and urban wells in 49 states; MTBE is detected in 5¿10 percent of community drinking water supplies in high-oxygenat ...

  6. Mixed Potential-Based Miniature Sensors for Real-Time On-Vehicle NOx Monitoring From Mobile Sources

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Nitric oxide and nitrogen dioxide (jointly represented as NOx) constitute one of the primary classes of pollutants in engine exhaust from both on-road mobile sources such as diesel trucks, and off-road sources such as tractors. Monitoring the NOx concentration in exhaust streams is critical for efficient application of new technologies for the reduction of NOx emissions, and for the enforcement o ...

  7. Using Scrap Tires to Save up to 100 Million Dollars Per Year by Mitigating Bridge Flood Damage

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project will investigate using scrap tires to form a protective system for mitigating local scour around bridge piers. Local scour is the erosion of the riverbed around bridge piers, which is induced by the recirculating juncture flow at the intersection of the pier and the riverbed. Bridge failure caused by this phenomenon has long been an important issue with respect to both publi ...

  8. N/A

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    Not Available State-of-the-art thermal control technologies are limited in their ability and increasingly unsatisfactory in their ability to provide the performance desired for chip level electronics and aerospace applications. This effort seeks to develop novel Germanium-based quantum confined structures to enable solid state thermal control technology. Phase I will establish the proof-of-concept ...

    SBIR Phase I 2000 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. Drift Mitigation by Optimization of Wingtip Modification

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase II project will confirm the drift reduction potential of the wingtip-mounted device developed in Phase I, through fabrication, installation on an agricultural aircraft, and field testing of the optimized design. Off-target drift of pesticides and herbicides during aerial spray applications remains a major source of environmental concern, due to its potential human health impacts, d ...
