The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for FY19 is not expected to be complete until June, 2020.

  1. A NEW CHARGE BASED COAGULANT DOSE CONTROL INSTRUMENT

    SBC: Clear Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The catastrophic drinking water treatment plant failure in March 1993 in Milwaukee was a direct result of the inability to control coagulant chemical dosage during significant changed in raw water quality. This event largely dispelled the myth that only small water utilities were vulnerable to such control problems. The current state of this critical technology, coagulant dose control, is woeful ...

  2. Innovative Technology for Efficient Utilization of Municipal Solid Waste

    SBC: EnerTech Environmental, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The need for a cost effective and cleaner method for MSW disposal hardly needs emphasizing. With EnerTech's slurry carbonization technology, liquid fuels, with a extremely low chlorine content, can be produced from RDF and are suitable for clean combustion in pulverized coal boilers. Objective of Phase I and II research is to accumulate necessary engineering data, from continuous pilot plants, t ...

  3. Novel Catalysts for Hydrogenolysis of Organochlorine Pollutants

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

    Hydrogenolysis is an energy efficient, zero emission method for the detoxification of hazardous chlorinated hydrocarbon (CHC) wastes. In CHC hydrogenolysis, the chlorinated hydrocarbon is reacted with hydrogen to produce a hydrocarbon and an inorganic acid (HC1). In the Phase I project, TDA Research, Inc. (TDA), demonstrated a new type of catalyst with high activity for hydrodechlorination of al ...

  4. A Novel Extractant for the Selective Removal of Arsenic from Industrial Wastewaters

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

    The combustion of fossil fuels, particularly coal, introduces large quantities of arsenic into the environment, much of which reaches natural waters. Acute arsenic poisoning results from ingestion of only 100 mg of the element, while chronic poisoning occurs with the continued ingestion of smaller amounts. Processes developed for arsenic removal from drinking water are appropriate for small volu ...

  5. A Low Cost, Long Life Zinc Oxide Based Sorbent

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

    Coal fired Gasifer Combined Cycles (GCC) have both high efficiency and very low emissions. A critical need for GCCs is a method of removing the H2S produced from the sulfur in the coal from the hot gases. There has been extensive research on hot gas clean-up systems, focused on the use of a zinc oxide based sorbent (e.g., zinc titanate). Unfortunately, current sorbents are relatively expensive, ...

  6. CATALYSTS FOR THE OXIDATION OF NO TO NO2

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

    Nitrogen oxides (NO and NOx, collectively referred to as NOx) are among the mostpervasive and difficult emissions to control. NOx emissions can be reducedsomewhat by combustion modification techniques, but these reduce operatingefficiency and will not reduce levels to meet requirements of currentlegislation. Post combustion control is also difficult. Currently, there areno commercial catalytic ...

  7. SIMULTANEOUS EXTRACTION OF ANIONIC AND CATIONIC METAL CONTAMINANTS AT SUPERFUND SITES

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

    Soils and groundwater contaminated with heavy metals are serious environmentalproblems. More than 70% of 358 Superfund hazardous waste dump sites arecontaminated with zinc, while chromium, copper, and lead are found in more than50% of these sites. The environmental remediation processes used to clean upmetal contaminated sites generally produce large volumes of water contaminatedwith low concent ...

  8. AN IMPROVED NOXSO PROCESS

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

    Coal is the largest source of power generation in the U.S.A. but its conbustionproduces SOx and NOx which must be removed from the flue gas. Current removaltechniques (limestone base Flue Gas Desulfurization and Selective CatalyticReduction) are effective but expensive due to the large amouth of sorbentconsumed. The leading regenerable process is the NOXSO process, which wses asodium aluminate s ...

  9. LOW-TEMPERATURE CATALYSTS FOR SELECTIVE OXIDATION OF HYDROGEN SULFIDE TO SULFUR

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

    Natural gas provided 30% of the energy consumed in the U.S. in 1992.Unfortunately, almost 25% of the U.S. gas reserves are contaminated with H2S.Due to its acidic nature and corrosivity, the H2S content of gas enteringpipelines must be lower than 4ppm.In a typical large gas plant, the H2S is stripped out of the natural gas by anaqueous amine solution. Upon regeneration, the amine solution produ ...

  10. ZEOLITE MEMBRANES FOR REMOVAL OF CONTAMINANTS IN DRINKING WATER

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

    As demands for drinking water quality become increasingly stringent, new methodsfor educing contaminant levels to the low ppb range are being sought. Ofparticular concern is the reduction of trihalomethanes (THM's), reaction productsfrom chlorination of water in the presence of naturally occurring humic andfulvic acids. These compounds have been identified as probable carcinogens.Membrane filtra ...
