  1. "REDUCTION OF ELECTRONICS INDUSTRY TOXIC AIR EMISSIONS THROUGH THE USE OF A NOVEL VENT GAS SCRUBBER"

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    THE RAPID GROWTH OF THE AMERICAN MICROELECTRONICS INDUSTRY HAS SPAWNED NEW ENVIRONMENTAL PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PROCESSES USED TO PREPARE SEMICONDUCTOR CHIPS, THE KEY COMPONENTS OF SOPHISTICATED ELECTRONIC DEVICES. MOST OF THESE PROBLEMS HAVE BEEN IGNORED BECAUSE RELATIVELY LOW VOLUMES OF CHEMICALS ARE ASSOCIATED WITH SEMICONDUCTOR FABRICATION. HOWEVER, THE EXCEPTIONALLY HIGH TOXICITY OF THE ...

  2. ELECTROTHERMAL REFORMING OF HAZARDOUS ORGANICS AND WATER- SOLUBLE WASTES

    SBC: A1-chem Fuels Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A1-CHEM FUELS, INC. HAS A PATENT PENDING FOR AN ELECTROTHER-MAL DEVICE TO PRODUCE MEDIUM TO HIGH BTU FUEL GAS FROM WASTEHYDROCARBON SOURCES. THIS UNIT OPERATES BY PRODUCING A HIGH-VOLTAGE ALTERNATING CURRENT ELECTRIC DISCHARGE ACROSS THE INTERFACE BETWEEN A WASTE HYDROCARBON AND WATER. THE EXTREMELY HIGH TEMPERATURE WITHIN THE ELECTRICAL DISCHARGE IS SUFFICIENT TO CAUSE LOCALIZED FAST PYROLYSIS OF ...

  3. A Sensitive and Affordable Compact Ammonia Monitor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ammonia has an important role in the chemistry of the atmospheric environment and air quality. Ammonia emissions are a major environmental concern, yet they remain poorly quantified. There is a need for a sensitive ammonia instrument to monitor emissions and evaluate their effects on the local and regional environments. An instrument capable of continuous monitoring is required to understand diurn ...

  4. Low Cost Imager for Pollutant Gas Leak Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Infrared (IR) imaging is the best method for detecting leaks of pollutant gases, but current technology based on cooled IR imagers is far too expensive ($75,000 to $150,000) for everyday field use by those who need it to meet regulatory limits¿electric and petrochemical utilities, manufacturing plants, and businesses such as supermarkets. Agiltron will demonstrate a new class of IR imager instrum ...

  5. Monitoring the Effects of Nanoparticles on Human Health Using an Inexpensive Fathead Minnow Microarray

    SBC: EcoArray, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The use of nanoparticles has increased in manufacturing, industry, and commercial products over the past two decades. As a result, governmental agencies, industry, and academia worldwide have formed advisory groups to evaluate exposure and toxicity issues surrounding the potential adverse effects of nanomaterials on human health. However, assessing the potential effects of nanoparticles on human h ...

  6. Advance Manure Management for Small Dairy Farms

    SBC: Avatar Alternative Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposed project is for the experimental operation and performance review of a pilot-scale anaerobic digester and effluent treatment system for small dairy farms. This would be one of the first digesters built on a dairy farm with a herd size of 50-100 heads. Although digesters are considered to be a valuable addition to a farms manure management strategy, several sources have stated that far ...

  7. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
