  1. REMOVAL AND RECOVERY OF HEAVY METAL IONS FROM INDUSTRIAL WASTEWATER USING IMMOBILIZED ALGAE

    SBC: Bio-recovery Systems, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE PLATING AND ELECTRONICS INDUSTRIES ARE REQUIRED BY STATEAND FEDERAL REGULATIONS TO REMOVE TOXIC, HEAVY METALS FROM WASTEWATER STREAMS BEFORE DISCHARGE. THE SEMICONDUCTOR AND AND PRINTED CIRCUIT INDUSTRY ALONE REMOVED OVER 7.2 TONS OF HEAVY METALS FROM WASTEWATER IN 1983. MUCH OF THE RECOVERED METALS ARE DISCARDED AS SLUDGES, BECAUSE TECHNIQUES FOR RECOVERING AND SEPARATING THE METAL IONS ARE U ...

  3. CARONACEOUS PARTICULATE EMISSION REDTIONS OBTAINED BY A CATALYTICALLY ENHANCED DIESEL ENGINE

    SBC: Pfefferle W C Associates            Topic: N/A

    PARTICULATE EMISSIONS BY DIESEL ENGINES ARE A SERIOUS HEALTHHAZARD AND HAVE BEEN THE FOCUS OF RECENT EPA RULEMAKING RESTRICTING EMISSIONS BY LARGER DIESEL VEHICLE ENGINES. AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY AND ECONOMIC CONSIDERATIONS HAVE RESTRICTED USEFUL DECISIONS ON HOW MUCH TO RESTRICT PERMIS SIBLE PARTICULATE EMISSION LEVELS. WILLIAM C. PFEFFERLE ASSOCIATES (WCP) HAS INVENTED A PROPRIETARY CATALYTICALLY- ...

  4. DESTRUCTION OF ORGANIC HAZARDOUS WASTE BY THE HDI ELECTRIC ARC PROCESS 11490

    SBC: Applied Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DESTRUCTION OF ORGANIC HAZARDOUS WASTE BY ELECTRIC ARC PYROLYSIS HAS BEEN DEMONSTRATED TO BE TECHNICALLY FEASIBLE BY OTHERS. THE PRINCIPAL PROBLEMS LIE IN (1) THE SHORT LIFEOF THE ELECTRODES (AND RELATED STRUCTURES) DUE TO THE HIGH TEMPERATURES INVOLVED, AND (2) THE RELATIVELY HIGH COST OF THE ELECTRIC POWER NEEDED. APPLIED RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. PROPOSE TO DESTROY ORGANIC HAZARDOUS WASTE B ...

  5. NEW METHOD FOR CONTROLLING THE NOX FROM STATIONARY GAS ENGINES

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    STATIONARY GAS ENGINES PRODUCE A DISPROPORTIONATELY LARGE SHARE OF THE TOTAL NOX EMISSIONS IN THE U.S., BUT NO AVAILABLE TECHNOLOGY OFFERS A SATISFACTORY MEANS OF REDUCING THEIR EMISSIONS. THESE ENGINES ARE PREDOMINANTLY TWO CYCLE AND PRODUCE AN EXHAUST HAVING A HIGH RATIO OF OXYGEN (O2) TO NITRIC OXIDE (NO). THUS, A SELECTIVE NO REDUCTION TECHNIQUE IS NEEDED WHICH CONVERTS THE NO TO NITROGEN (N2) ...

  7. PT/RH/Y-STABILIZED-ZIRCONIA CATALYST FOR THE TREATMENT OF AUTOMOTIVE EXHAUST GAS

    SBC: PCP Consulting & Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE COST OF PLATINUM AND RHODIUM IN THE THREE-WAY CATALYST ACCOUNTS FOR A MAJOR FRACTION OF THE COST ASSOCIATED WITH TREATMENT OF AUTOMOTIVE EXHAUST. THEREFORE, STRIVING TO ACHIEVE A HIGHER LEVEL OF POLLUTANT REMOVAL BY INCREASING THE PLATINUM AND RHODIUM CONTENTS IN THE THREE-WAY CATALYST IS NOT ECONOMICALLY ATTRACTIVE. IN THIS RESEARCH, AN ALTER-NATIVE METHOD FOR ACHIEVING A HIGHER LEVEL OF POLL ...

  9. IMPROVED INCINERATOR FOR HAZARDOUS WASTE ENERGY AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH CORPORATION

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    DURING HAZARDOUS WASTE INCINERATION A PHENOMENON KNOW AS PUFFING OCCURS, I.E., A LARGE AMOUNT OF ORGANIC MATTER SUDDNELY VAPORIZES IN THE COMBUSTION CHAMBER. SINCE THE SUPPLY OF COMBUSTION AIR IS NOT ADEQUATE FOR COMPLETE OXIDATION OF THIS SUDDENLY RELEASED ORGANIC MATTER, IT CANNOT BE COMPLETELY OXIDIZED, AND ESCAPES FROM THE INCINERATION IN A PUFF. THE FACT THAT COMMERCIAL HAZARDOUS WASTE INCINE ...

  10. HIGH EFFICIENCY ACTIVATED CARBON FOR DRINKING WATER TREATMENT

    SBC: Mega-carbon            Topic: N/A

    A HIGH EFFICIENCY ACTIVATED CARBON GRANULE WILL BE DEVELOPED FOR DRINKING WATER TREATMENT. THE FOUNDATION FOR THIS HIGH EFFICIENCY GRANULE IS A SUPERACTIVATED CARBON WITH A BET SURFACE AREA IN EXCESS OF 3000 M(2)/GM USING THE STANDARD PROCEDURE BY BRUNAUER, EMMETT, AND TELLER, AND AN IODINE NUMBER GREATER THAN 3000 MG/G. TWO GRANULATIN TECHNOLOGIES WILL BE EXPLORED: SPHERICAL AGGLOMERATION AND EXT ...
