  1. CATALYTIC ADSORBENTS FOR THE ABATEMENT OF CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS

    SBC: Aircor Inc            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL EMISSION CONTROL PROCESS FOR CHLORINATED HYDROCARBONS PRODUCES NO TOXIC OR CORROSIVE SECONDARY GASES. CATALYTIC ADSORBENT MATERIALS WILL BE DEVELOPED TO DESTROY LOW CONCENTRATIONS OF CHLORINATED HYDROCARBON IN GASEOUS EFFLUENTS WITHOUT THE RELEASE OF HYDROCHLORIC ACID AND CHLORINE GAS. INSTEAD THE ADSORBENT WILL FIX THE CHLORINE ATOMS AS HARMLESS NONVOLATILE CHLORIDE SALT AT TEMPERATURES W ...

  2. ROBOTIC INSPECTION OF CRUDE OIL CARRIER TANKS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE INSPECTION OF VERY LARGE CRUDE CARRIERS (VLCC) FOR STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY IS AN IMPORTANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. THESE LARGE VESSELS TRANSPORT CRUDE OIL IN SUCH QUANTITIES THAT THE CONSEQUENCE OF AN OIL SPILL DUE TO A BROKEN WELD ARE VERY SERIOUS. IMPROVED TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED TO INSPECT VLCC TANKS FOR DEFECTS SUCH AS CRACKS IN SEAMS, CORROSION AND FAILED STRUCTURAL MEMBERS. THE COST OF INSPE ...

  3. REDUCTION OF INDOOR AIR POLLUTION BY MEMBRANE STRIPPING OOF WATERBORNE RADON GAS

    SBC: Arete Technologies            Topic: N/A

    RADON-222 IN INDOOR AIR HAS BEEN IDENTIFIED AS A PERVASIVE POLLUTANT AND A SIGNIFICANT HEALTH THREAT. ARETE TECHNOLOGIES PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE A MEMBRANE-BASED SYSTEMFOR MITIGATING THE INDOOR AIR POLLUTION PROBLEM TO WHICH WATERBORNE RADON GAS CAN CONTRIBUTE. THE SYSTEM, WHICH OPERATES AT WATER SUPPLY PRESSURE, AVOIDS THE PROBLEMS OF RADIOACTIVITY BUILDUP AND SPENT CARBON DISPOSAL ASSOCIATED WIT ...

  4. A NATURAL OAT-DERIVED OIL SPILL DISPERSANT

    SBC: Basic Bio Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    BASIC BIO SYSTEMS, INC., PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE A NOVEL APPROACH TO OIL SPILL CLEANUP UTILIZING A NATURAL, OAT-DERIVED DISPERSANT. PROTEINACEOUS OAT FRACTIONS DEVELOPED BY BASIC BIO SYSTEMS, INC. HAVE THE ABILITY TO ABSORB SEVERAL TIMES THEIR WEIGHT OF A WIDE RANGE OF COMPOUNDS, INCLUDING HYDROPHOBIC MATERIALS SUCH AS OILS. INADDITION, THESE FRACTIONS CAN FUNCTION AS EFFECTIVE EMULSIFIERS, FORMIN ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. ELIMINATION OF FERTILIZER DISCHARGE FROM GREENHOUSE AND NURSERY CONTAINER-GROWN PLANTS

    SBC: Briggs Nursery Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN THE U.S. THERE ARE OVER 24,753 ACRES OF CONTAINER-GROWN NURSERY PLANTS. REPORTED ANNUAL RATES OF APPLICATION OF NITROGEN (N) FERTILIZER RANGE FROM 1036 TO 4730 POUNDS OF N PER ACRE. DETERMINATIONS OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL FATE OF THE APPLIED NITROGEN SHOWS THAT ONLY 5-8% OF THE APPLIED NITROGEN IS INCORPORATED INTO THE PLANT. THE U.S. ANNUAL PRODUCTION OF 24,753 ACRES OF CONTAINER-GROWN WOODY NURSE ...

  8. SAFE, ENVIRONMENTALLY ACCEPTABLE RESOURCES RECOVERY FROM OIL REFINERY SLUDGE

    SBC: Calderon Energy Company Of            Topic: N/A

    PETROLEUM REFINERIES ARE UNAVOIDABLY GENERATING WASTE STREAMS OF OIL SLUDGE IN THE AMOUNT OF APPROXIMATELY 30,000 TONS PER YEAR PER REFINERY. THE WASTE STREAM COMPRISES SEDIMENT FROM STORAGE TANKS, BOTTOMS FROM DISTILLATION UNITS, SPENT CATALYST, AND WASTE WATER. DISPOSAL OF THIS REFINERY SLUDGE IS A CHALLENGE TO THE PETROLEUM INDUSTRY. CALDERON ENERGY COMPANY OF BOWLING GREEN, INC., BELIEVES IT W ...

  9. IN-PLANT REDUCTION OF HAZARDOUS WASTE GENERATION IN THE FLUOROCARBON INDUSTRY

    SBC: Chemical & Metal Industries, I            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1991 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. RECYCLING OF SOLID ZINC PHOSPHATING PROCESS WASTE

    SBC: Chemical Reclamation Tech            Topic: N/A

    A METHOD FOR RECYCLING ZINC PHOSPHATING PROCESS WASTE IS PROPOSED. ABOUT THREE MILLION POUNDS OF SOLID CHEMICAL WASTE IS GENERATED ANNUALLY FROM ZINC PHOSPHATING IN NORTH AMERICA. THE WASTE IS AN INORGANIC MIXED ZINC/IRON TERTIARY SALT OF PHOSPHORIC ACID. TOXICITY LEVELS VARY BUT MOST WASTES CONTAIN NICKEL, CHROME, LEAD, AND OTHER TOXINS IN SMALL QUANTITIES. THE METHOD DEPENDS UPON CONTINUOUS REMO ...
