  1. Mill Trials of a Novel Formaldehyde-Free Soy-Based Wood Adhesive for Making Plywood

    SBC: Lao K LLC            Topic: TopicA

    Interior wood composite panels are widely used for furniture, bookshelves, kitchen cabinets, and flooring, and are predominately made with carcinogenic urea-formaldehyde (UF) resin. A new formaldehyde-free, environmentally friendly wood adhesive that mainly consists of abundant, renewable and readily available soybean flour and a novel curing agent have been developed in a laboratory. The novel cu ...

  2. Development of Structural Building Elements from Oriented Straw Cable

    SBC: Ashland Prototypes            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal of this proposed project is the development of load bearing, structural building elements from oriented straw. Producting building elements from surplus staw will help provide low-cost housing in rural areas, and will help reduce greenhouse emissions associated with the production of typical construction materials. Producting building materials free from VOCs and other toxins wi ...

  3. SLUDGE RECLAMATION USING COUPLED-TRANSPORT MEMBRANES

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    IN 1980 THE METALS AND ELECTRONICS INDUSTRIES GENERATED OVER SEVEN MILLION TONS OF HAZARDOUS WASTE AT A COST OF $100TO $400/TON. THESE SLUDGES, WHICH CONTAIN SUBSTANTIAL AMOUNTS OF MIXED HEAVY METALS, PRESENT A SERIOUS DISPOSAL PROBLEM AND REPRESENT A WASTE OF NATURAL RESOURCES. THE INTRINSIC VALUE OF METAL SUCH AS NICKEL, CHROMIUM, AND TANTALUM CONTAINED IN THESE SLUDGES IS HIGH, PROVIDING A SIGN ...

  4. REMOVAL OF ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS FROM INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATERS BY PERVAPORATION

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE REMOVAL OF ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS FROM WASTEWATERS IS A KEY ASPECT OF THIS COUNTRY'S POLLUTION-CONTROL EFFORT. HOWEVER, CONVENTIONAL TREATMENT TRAINS ARE COMPLICATED AND EXPENSIVE. IN THIS PROPOSED PROGRAM, WE WILL INITIATE DEVELOPMENT OF A MEMBRANE-BASED PROCESS, CALLED PERVAPORATION, FOR THE REMOVAL AND RECOVERY OF ORGANIC POLLUTANTS FROM INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATERS. THIS PROCESS HAS THE CAPABILITY ...

  5. MEMBRANE PERVAPORATION FOR REMOVAL OF ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS FROM DRINKING WATER SUPPLIES

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CONTAMINATION OF THE NATION'S DRINKING WATER SUPPLIES BY HAZARDOUS, SYNTHETIC VOLATILE ORGANIC CHEMICALS (VOCS) IS BECOMING A WIDESPREAD PROBLEM. THIS PROBLEM IS OF GREAT CONCERN WITH RESPECT TO CONTAMINATED GROUNDWATER. GROUNDWATER IS THESOURCE OF DRINKING WATER FOR ABOUT HALF THE NATION. THE EPAESTIMATES THAT UP TO 20% OF THE DRINKING WATER THAT COMES FROM GORUNDWATER CONTAINS VOCS. METHODS FOR ...

  6. NOVEL SENSORS FOR METAL-ION DETECTION AND QUANTIFICATION

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    METALS AND METAL COMPLEXES PLAY AN IMPORTANT ROLE IN MANY INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES. DUE TO THE WIDESPREAD AND LARGE-SCALEUSE OF METALS, MONITORING THEIR PRESENCE IN WASTE STREAMS AND CONTROLLING THEIR LEVELS OF DISCHARGE INTO THE ENVIRON-MENT ARE DIFFICULT AND COSTLY TASKS--TASKS THAT ARE ALL THE MORE IMPORTANT GIVEN THE TOXICITY OF MANY COMMONLY USED METALS. CURRENTLY AVAILABLE SENSOR TECHNOLOGY FOR ...

  7. DEVELOPMENT OF IMPROVED COUPLED-TRANSPORT MEMBRANES FOR THE RECOVERY AND RECYCLE OF METAL IONS

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    VAST QUANTITIES OF INDUSTRIAL ACIDS, BASES, PROCESSING SOLUTIONS, AND SLUDGES CONTAIN HEAVY METALS. THESE ARE OFTEN HAZARDOUS, AND IF LEFT UNREGULATED, PRESENT A SERIOUS THREAT TO GROUNDWATER AND THE SURROUNDING ENVIRONMENT. TECHNOLOGIES AVAILABLE FOR TREATING INDUSTRIAL WASTES ARE TYPICALLY INADEQUATE AND EXTREMELY EXPENSIVE. NEW METHODS ARE CLEARLY NEEDED FOR REMOVING TOXIC METALS FROM PROCESS S ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. A NOVEL MEMBRANE SYSTEM FOR RECOVERING VOLATILE ORGANIC CONTAMINANTS FROM AIR

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTROL OF VOLATILE ORGANIC CONTAMINANT (VOC) EMISSIONS FROM INDUSTRIAL PROCESSES AND FUEL SOURCES IS AN IMPORTANT ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEM. STRINGENT REGULATIONS HAVE BEEN ENACTED THAT WILL LIMIT SUCH EMISSIONS, HEIGHTENING THE NEED FOR SMALL, SIMPLE UNITS THAT CAN RECOVER VOCS AND RETURN THEM AS REUSABLE COMPOUNDS. CURRENT VOC-REMOVAL TECHNOLOGIES, SUCH AS INCINERATION, CARBON ADSORPTION, AND C ...

    SBIR Phase II 1993 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. A MEMBRANE-BASED PROCESS FOR THE REMOVAL OF BTEX FROM GLYCOL DEHYDRATION VENTS

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A major source of volatile organic compound emissions into the environment is thevent stream from the glycol-based dehydration units used to remove water fromnatural gas. A glycol dehydration unit operating on a 50-million SCFD naturalgas stream will typically discharge more than 40 tons per year of varioushazardous volatile organic air pollutants - about half of which is "BTEX"(benzene, toluene, ...

    SBIR Phase II 1996 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. NOVEL PERVAPORATION SYSTEM FOR RECOVERY OF ORGANICS FROM HAZARDOUS WASTE STREAMS

    SBC: BEND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. chemical industry accounts for over 200 million tons/year of hazardousliquid waste containing organic chemicals. These waste streams are difficult totreat using conventional technologies such as carbon adsorption and steamstripping. Membrane processes--particularly pervaporation--offer energy and costadvantages over conventional techniques. However, current pervaporationmembrane-module ...
