  1. BioBinder Activated Carbon for Polluiton Control

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 1997 Environmental Protection Agency
  2. 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 ...

  3. Low Cost, Environmentally Benign Non-Chromate Conversion Coating

    SBC: Chemat Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 1997 Environmental Protection Agency
  4. High Efficiency and Low Cost NOx Control via Promoted N-Agent Injection

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Prospective technologies for stationary post-combustion NOx control include: Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) and Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR). These processes reduce NOx by non-catalytic or catalytic reactions with N-Agents (ammonia or urea). There are several problems with SCR, such as high capital cost, limited catalyst life, catalyst poisoning, and disposal. SNCR is less expe ...

  5. Testing a New Separation Device for Sorting Recycled Plastic Chips Based on Differences in Specific Gravity

    SBC: MBA Polymers, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Approximately 9 billion kilograms of plastic are used to produce durable goods each year in the United States, but only 2% of this plastic is recycled today. A major obstacle to recycling plastics from durable goods is that the densities of different plastics are often very similar, requiring a highly accurate sorting technique based on differences in specific gravity. There are many techniques ...

  6. Novel Nonporous Capillary Nanofiltration Membrane for Wastewater Treatment

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    U.S. industry generates large volumes of wastewater that contain suspended particulates, emulsified liquids, dissolved macromolecules, or dissolved organic compounds. Nanofiltration or ultrafiltration can produce dischargeable water from these streams. However, because current nanofiltration and ultrafiltration membranes are finely porous and only moderately hydrophilic, they are subject to foulin ...

  7. Novel Membranes for In-Process Recycling of Hydrocarbon Feedstocks in Oxygen-Oxidation Processes

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Oxygen-oxidation processes are used to produce a number of important chemicals, including ethylene oxide, propylene oxide, terephthalic acid, and vinyl chloride. Approximately 450 million lbs/yr of the hydrocarbon feedstocks used in these processes are lost as part of an inert gas purge stream from the reactor. Currently, this gas is flared, which results in a loss of valuable chemicals and an in ...

  8. In-Process Recycling of Monomer From Purge Streams in Polyethylene and Polypropylene Plants

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    All polyethylene and polypropylene polymerization plants use a purge to remove paraffins entering the reactor with the olefin monomer. Loss of monomer with this purge represents 1-2% of the total monomer consumption of the plant and most of the plant¿s volatile organic compound emissions. The recovery value of the monomer is about $1 million/year for a typical plant. This research project prop ...

  9. Recovery of Perfluorethane from Chemical Vapor Deposition Operation in the Semiconductor Industry

    SBC: MEMBRANE TECHNOLOGY AND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase II 1997 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. Silica Materials for Mercury Recovery From Wastewater

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A number of industrial processes generate wastewater with mercury contamination. Existing cleanup processes have difficulties in achieving low mercury discharge limits, especially in the presence of competing metal ions already below their discharge limits. Commercial ion exchange media are not selective for mercury, so other metal ions compete with mercury for binding sites. Consequently, excess ...
