  1. A NITROGEN DIOXIDE MONITOR BASED ON NONDISPERSIVE VISIBLE OPTICAL DETECTION

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

    The problem addressed in this project is the need to monitor oxides of nitrogen(NOx, ie NO and NO2) levels in the combustion gases of stationary sources suchas power plants in order to facilitate on-line control of the scrubbers that willbe used to remove those pollutants. Since the measurements are in the parts permillion range, simpler and less expensive instruments than those currently used,su ...

  2. Laser Diode Array for Multiple Pollutant Monitoring

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

    Infrared tunable diode laser spectrometers provide a highly effective means of measuring trace concentrations, with either remote sensing or with advective sampling. It is often desirable to measure more than one trace gas at a time. This is especially true when gas emissions are strongly correlated, such as in combustion emissions where measuring both the CO2 concentration and another minor con ...

  3. LASER INDUCED FLUORESCENCE MONITORING OF SOLVENT RECOVERY PROCESSES

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

    Developments in on-site spent solvent recovery have implications for reducedenvironmental pollution in the dry cleaning, furniture and paint manufacturingindustries as well as in a range of commercial services. Effluents from solventrecovery operations include fugitive emissions, vent stack gases and water/solvent mixtures. At present, the scale of solvent-recovery operations incertain industrie ...

  4. Disposable Micromachined Flow Immunoassay for Field Detection of Contaminants

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

    The use of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) to detect contaminants such as solvents, fuels, and pesticides in soil and water samples is now well established. Although ELISA and related methods can facilitate analysis of samples, several washing and separation steps are involved that require 30 to 120 minutes per sample to reach equilibrium. Recently, near infrared fluorescence immunoassa ...

  5. Novel Ceramic-Organic Vapor Permeation Membranes for VOC Removal

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. Fouling-Resistant Ceramic Membranes for Treatment of Metastable Oil/Water Emulsions

    SBC: Ceramem Corporation            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1994 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. Self-Monitoring Surveillance System for Prestressing Tendons

    SBC: Construction Technology            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1995 Nuclear Regulatory Commission
  8. THE USE OF MULTI-COMPONENT WASTE PRODUCTS FOR USE IN ROOFING MATERIALS

    SBC: Ecomat, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The use of multi-component waste products provides an opportunity to produce aroofing material with an excellent balance of cost and properties. Simulatedslate tiles comprised of fly ash, other reinforcing filler, and thermoset hybridresin have been modelled. Based on initial market reactions to preliminary cost,physical properties data, and appearance, this application appears promising.Ecomat ...

  9. A STAGED FLUID BED CONTACTOR FOR THE ECONOMIC THERMAL DESTRUCTION OF TOXIC CHEMICALS ON SOILS

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE COST FOR REMOVING TOXIC CHEMICALS FROM THE SOIL WITH PRESENT TECHNOLOGY IS ENORMOUS, IN SOME CASES, POPULATIONS THE COST FOR REMOVING TOXIC CHEMICALS FROM THE SOIL WITH PRESENT TECHNOLOGY IS ENORMOUS. IN SOME CASES, POPULATIONS MUST BE RELOCATED AND MANY ACRE-FEET OF SOIL MUST BE EXCAVA-TED AND TREATED OR STORED IN "SAFE" STORAGE FACILITIES. IM-PROVED TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED TO REDUCE CLEAN-UP CO ...

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. COMPREHENSIVE AIR POLLUTION CONTROL USING THE ELECTRON BEAM PROCESS

    SBC: Energy Sciences Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN THIS RESEARCH, AN ELECTRON BEAM PROCESS WILL BE INVESTI- GATED WHICH HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DESTROY TOXIC MOLECULES SUCH AS DIOXINS, FURANS, AND POLYNUCLEAR AROMATIC HYDROCAR- CARBONS PRODUCED, FOR EXAMPLE, BY THE INCINERATION OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE. SOME ISOMERS OF THESE COMPOUNDS ARE HIGHLY TOXIC; THEREFORE,THE WORK WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED USING NON-TOXIC MODEL COMPOUNDS EXHIBITING CHEMICAL FUNC ...
