  1. Biofuel Production from Grease Trap Waste

    SBC: Environmental Fuel Research, LLC            Topic: F

    Environmental Fuel Research, LLC, proposes to commercialize a grease trap waste to biofuel process based on process research from Drexel University. Grease trap waste is dirty and low-value material produced by the food service industry that is high in lipids that can be converted to biodiesel. The quantity of grease trap waste in the United States could produce one-half billion gallons of biodies ...

  2. Enhanced Decontamination of Wetted Pipe Material

    SBC: ENCHEM ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: E

    This project focuses on dissolution and destruction of adhered or trapped target compounds, such as pesticides on wetted porous surfaces (e.g., pipe walls). Our innovative treatment approach is based on simultaneous: (1) desorption from the pipe wall, and (2) oxidation via radical formation. OxyZone-C®, a proprietary reactive agent developed by our team, combines highly effective cyclodextrin­fa ...

  4. Micro Channel Electrochemical Production of Dimethyl Carbonate

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: B

    Presently, there are no U.S. manufacturers for producing dimethyl carbonate (DMC), an environmentally benign and nonflammable solvent used in numerous applications. This strategically important solvent is used in numerous products, ranging from batteries to plastics, with most production occurring in China. DMC is a favored solvent for lithium ion batters due to its low volatility and nonflammable ...

  5. High Flux Nanofiltration Membrane for Emerging Contaminant Control

    SBC: ASPEN PRODUCTS GROUP, INC.            Topic: A

    A variety of inorganic and organic contaminants originating from municipal, agricultural and industrial wastewater sources are being found with increasing frequency in the Nation’s natural and drinking water supplies. These “emerging contaminants” include pharmaceuticals, antibiotics, steroids, hormones, flame retardants, perfluorinated compounds, personal care products, and herbicides and p ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. DRY SCRUBBING OF SOX AND NOX OVER LANTHANIDE-OXYGEN- SULFUR COMPOUNDS

    SBC: Electrochem, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    EXISTING PROCESSES FOR COMBINED REMOVAL OF SOX/NOX FROM COMBUSTION GASES HAVE NOT BEEN PROVEN TO BE PARTICULARLY EFFECTIVE IN MEETING CURRENT EMISSION STANDARDS. SELECTIVE CATALYTIC REDUCTIONS FOR NOX REMOVAL ARE AVAILABLE, AND ARE EFFECTIVE IN REACHING CURRENT EMISSION STANDARDS, BUT THEY ARE PROHIBITIVELY EXPENSIVE IN MANY APPLICATIONS BECAUSE OF THE HIGH INITIAL COST OF THE CATALYST AND ITS REP ...

  9. SUPPRESSION OF CYANIDE FORMATION IN HALL PROCESS POTLINING

    SBC: EMEC Consultants            Topic: N/A

    SPENT POTLINING FROM INDUSTRIAL PRIMARY ALUMINUM PRODUCTION CELLS IS A DESIGNATED HAZARDOUS MATERIAL BECAUSE OF ITS CYANIDE CONTENT. OVER 100,000 TONS OF THIS MATERIAL ARE ANNUALLY LANDFILLED IN THE UNITED STATES. IT WOULD BE DESIRABLE TO AVOID THE FORMATION OF CYANIDE DURING THE OPERATION OF THE CELLS. EMEC CONSULTANTS PROPOSETO INVESTIGATE THE CONDITIONS AT WHICH CYANIDES FORM AND MIGRATE WITHIN ...
