  1. An Innovative Transport Membrane Condenser for Water Recovery from Flue Gas and Its Reuse

    SBC: Media and Process Technology Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although water recycle and reuse is considered good environmental practice, its implementation is highly dependent upon the economics and hence can be challenging to implement. An example is the recovery of low quality heat as water condensate from industrial flue gases. In this case, tremendous quantities of energy and water are lost out the stack in the US today, since no conventional condensing ...

  2. A New Innovative Low Cost Manufacturing Process to Produce Titanium

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    All titanium is produced by the Kroll process, which is a batch process for the magnesium (Mg) reduction of titanium tetrachloride (TiCl4). Separate operations are required to produce the toxic and very corrosive TiCl4, which must be stored and transported. Magnesium also is produced separately in liquid form via the electrolysis of magnesium chloride (MgCl2), which requires storage and transport ...

  3. Inexpensive Drinking Water Chlorination Unit for Small Communities

    SBC: REACTIVE INNOVATIONS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    More than 250 drinking water systems exist for small communities in Puerto Rico that serve between 25 and 500 individuals. These water systems fall outside of the Puerto Rico Aqueduct and Sewer Authority and, thus, have insufficient water treatment systems or no water treatment systems. Water sources for these communities are from groundwater and surface water with flow rates up to 50,000 gallons ...

  4. Nanomaterial Solutions for Hot Coal Gas Cleanup

    SBC: Engi-Mat Co.            Topic: N/A

    Integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC) is a new coal gasification technique that efficiently uses the hot (900-1500°C) generated syngas to power both steam and gas turbines. Due to regulations, this syngas must be free of sulfur and purification is normally carried out at reduced temperatures (< 500°C); however, using this temperature requires the cooling and reheating of coal gas, which ...

  5. Nanocrystalline Materials for Removal of Reduced Sulfur and Nitrogen Compounds from Fuel Gas

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Integrated gasification combined cycle (IGCC), which uses a gasilier to convert coal to fuel gas, and then uses a combined cycle power block to generate electricity. is one of the most promising technologies for generating electricity from coal in an environmentally sustainable way. IGCC has many advantages over traditional technologies including: higher efficiency, lower pollutant emissions, and ...

  6. Highly Bright, Heavy Metal-Free, and Stable Doped Semiconductor Nanophosphors for Economical Solid State Lighting Alternatives


    There is growing concern about how to limit the release of mercury into the environment. One significant source of mercury is found in fluorescent lamps. Recently, however, compact fluorescent lamps have been heavily promoted in order to conserve electrical energy. While it is true that switching to energy efficient lighting is one of the easiest ways to save energy, reduce CO2 emissions, and save ...

  7. Automated Removal of Brominated Flame Retardant Material From a Mixed E-waste Plastics Recycling Stream

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    Electronic waste (e-waste) is one of the most rapidly growing waste problems worldwide. Improper handling of e-waste results in vast amounts of toxic waste being sent to landfills and leaching into the water supply. Because of these concerns, e-waste recycling is a rapidly growing industry. Unfortunately, most current e-waste recycling processes rely on either manual hand sorting or differential d ...

  8. A Micro-Variable Circular Orifice (MVOC) Fuel Injector with Variable Spray Angles and Patterns for Reducting NOx Emissions from Diesel Engines


    Diesel engines are widely used due to their high fuel efficiency. However, conventional diesel engines have high NOx and soot emissions. Selective catalytic reduction (SCR) for NOx reduction is less accepted by the construction industry due to complexity and cost. In-cylinder NOx reduction is more desirable. When low temperature combustion and/or premixed charge compression ignition (PCCI) combus ...

  9. Process-intensified Low-Cost Biodiesel Production using Meat Rendering Waste, Greases, and Food Wastes

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

    Biodesel is a fuel that is made from processing vegetable oil or animal fats into a liquid fuel that can be combusted in a standard diesel engine. Biodiesel is made from a renewable resource such as soybeans or tallow, does not contribute to global warming, and can be made from domestic resources. However, the growth of the biodiesel industry has been slowed because the current production processe ...

  10. A Novel Approach for Safe and Rapid Decontamination of Buildings and Equipment and Nuetralization of Residues Using TERRACAP CB Decon System

    SBC: Rta Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Todays world and political climate lends itself to potential attacks by hostile forces and terrorists where both exterior and interior surfaces of vehicles, buildings, or equipment could become contaminated with biological warfare (BW) or chemical warfare (CW) agents. RTA Systems, Inc., proposes a system based on a two-part, water-based liquid solution that is spray-applied to contaminated surface ...
