  1. BioBinder Activated Carbon for Polluiton Control

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: 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


    SBIR Phase II 1997 Environmental Protection Agency
  4. Using Scrap Tires to Save up to 100 Million Dollars Per Year by Mitigating Bridge Flood Damage

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project will investigate using scrap tires to form a protective system for mitigating local scour around bridge piers. Local scour is the erosion of the riverbed around bridge piers, which is induced by the recirculating juncture flow at the intersection of the pier and the riverbed. Bridge failure caused by this phenomenon has long been an important issue with respect to both publi ...

  5. Particulate and Vapor State Metallic Emissions Monitor

    SBC: ENVIMETRICS            Topic: N/A

    The Clean Air Act of 1990 has raised the concern over trace concentrations of metals in flue gas from electrical generation plants, municipal waste incinerators, and heavy industrial plants. Monitoring will be required to determine the environmental impact and offers an opportunity to empirically minimize it. In flue gas, metals are found in both the vapor state and condensed on fly ash. For sp ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. The Development of a Biodegradable Hydraulic Fluid


    In this Phase I research project, Material Innovation, Inc., will develop a biodegradable and environmentally benign hydraulic fluid that minimizes hazardous pollution caused by accidental fluid spillage, lowers disposal costs of the used fluid, and helps the user industry to comply with environmental safety regulations. The operating temperature range for this hydraulic fluid will be from -54?C ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Conversion of Paper-Mill Sludge Into Pelletized, Composite Activated Sorbent

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

    This Phase I project will test the feasibility of converting paper mill sludge or filter-cake (FC), which is typically landfilled or incinerated and is a major environmental concern, into pelletized, composite sorbent of activated carbon and highly porous clay. There are currently more than 500 paper mills in the United States, each generating from 10 to more than 100 dry-tons of FC each day. Th ...

  10. Novel Nonporous Capillary Nanofiltration Membrane for Wastewater Treatment


    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 ...
