  1. BIOSCRUBBING VOLATILE NITROAROMATIC POLLUTANTS FROM AIR: BENCH-SCALE FEASIBILITY STUDY

    SBC: BELTRAN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE CONTROL OF NITROAROMATIC AIR POLLUTANTS BY BIOSCRUBBING WILL BE EVALUATED AS TO THEIR FEASIBILITY AND EFFICIENCY IN BENCH-SCALE EXPERIMENTS. A MICROBIAL CONSORTIUM ENRICHED ON SELECTED NITROAROMATIC AIR POLLUTANTS SUCH AS NITROBENZENE OR NITROTOLUENE WILL BE IMMOBILIZED ON A POROUS SOLID MATRIX PACKED INTO A SCRUBBING COLUMN. MEASURED VOLUMES OF AIR, CONTAINING KNOWN CONCENTRATIONS OF THE NITR ...

  2. A HAND-HELD LEAD DETECTOR

    SBC: ELECTROSYNTHESIS CO., INC.            Topic: N/A

    DURING THE MID-EIGHTIES, APPROXIMATELY THREE MILLION CHILDRED BETWEEN SIX MONTHS AND FIVE YEARS OLD HAD POISONOUS BLOOD LEAD CONCENTRATIONS DUE TO PAINT. THERE IS RISK FOR ADULTS IN THE PAINT, AUTOMOBILE MANUFACTURING, AND CERAMIC INDUSTRIES. THE NATION COULD SUBSTANTIALLY REDUCE THE INCIDENCE OF LEAD POISONING IF ONE WERE ABLE TO MEASURE LEAD USING A INEXPENSIVE, PORTABLE DEVICE. CURRENT LEAD MEA ...

  3. COLOR SORTING OF POST-CONSUMER GLASS AND PLASTIC CONTAINERS TO IMPROVE THEIR RECYCLABILITY

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    MANY U.S. MUNICIPALITIES AND COMMUNITIES ARE INTEGRATING RECYCLING PROGRAMS IN THE MANAGEMENT OF THEIR SOLID WASTE INORDER TO MINIMIZE LANDFILL REQUIREMENTS. THE SUCCESS OF THESE RECYCLING PROGRAMS IS STRONGLY DEPENDENT UPON THE MARKETABILITY OF THE MATERIALS SET ASIDE FROM THE WASTE STREAM FOR RECYCLING. THE REQUIREMENTS FOR MARKETING RECYCLED GLASS ARE WELL ESTABLISHED AND ARE HIGHLY DEPENDENTUP ...

  4. A LOW COST AUTOMATED PROCESS FOR RECOVERY OF RECYCLABLE PLASTIC AND GLASS CONTAINERS FROM SOLID WASTE

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE DISPOSAL OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE (MSW) IS A COSTLY PROBLEM FOR ALL MUNICIPALITIES. THE U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY HAS RECOMMENDED THAT SOURCE REDUCTION, RECYCLING, VOLUME REDUCTION, AND LANDFILLING BE APPLIED, IN THAT ORDER, IN THE TREATMENT OF MSW. RECYCLING HAS RECENTLY BECOME A MAJOR COMPONENT OF MUNICIPAL WASTE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS. HIGH COSTS OF LABOR INTENSIVE CURBSIDE RECYCLIN ...

  7. "SOLID-PHASE EXTRACTION OF NON-VOLATILES FROM AQUEOUS AND NON-AQUEOUS MATRICES--A SAMPLE PREPARATIVE TECHNIQUE FOR THEFIELD AND LAB"

    SBC: Nanco Labs Inc            Topic: N/A

    SOLID-PHASE EXTRACTION, A CURRENTLY DEVELOPING TECHNOLOGY MAY BE USED FOR ENVIRONMENTAL SAMPLE PREPARATION. THE PRESENT METHODLOGY OF LIQUID/LIQUID EXTRACTION IS NOT PRAC- TICAL IN THE FIELD. MANY INVESTIGATORS HAVE STUDIED SOLID- PHASE EXTRACTION. HOWEVER, THESE WORKS ARE LIMITED TO NAR- ROW CLASSES OF COMPOUNDS. NO OVERALL METHODOLOGY IS AVAILA-BLE FOR PREPARING A SAMPLE CONTAMINATED WITH MULTIP ...

  8. THE DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH-SPEED PORTABLE APPARATUS FOR THE IN-FIELD QUANTITATIVE ANALYSIS OF ASBESTOS

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY FOR ENERGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A PORTABLE INSTRUMENT, BASED ON THE PRINCIPLES OF X-RAY DIFFRACTION, IS PROPOSED WHICH WILL ALLOW QUANTITATIVE DETERMINATION OF THE PRESENCE OF ASBESTOS IN MATERIALS OF CONSTRUCTION. PRELIMINARY TESTS SHOW THAT A RESOLUTION OF A FEW WEIGHT PERCENT ASBESTOS CAN BE EASILY MEASURED. ANALYSISOF THE SYSTEM X-RAY PHYSICS INDICATE A LOWER LEVEL OF DETECTABILITY OF A FEW TENTHS OF A PERCENT SHOULD BE ACHI ...
