  1. RECUPERATIVE THERMAL SCREW CONTAMINATED SOIL CLEANING SYSTEM (CSCS)

    SBC: Drake Engineering Inc            Topic: N/A

    IMPROVED TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED TO PROVIDE RAPID, INEXPENSIVE, ON-SITE TREATMENT AND CLEANUP OF SOILS CONTAMINATED BY PETROLEUM HYDROCARBONS AND SOLVENTS. TREATED SOILS SHOULD BE SUITABLE FOR REPLACEMENT IN THEIR OWN EXCAVATION, AND THE TREATMENT PROCESS SHOULD NOT GENERATE ANY SECONDARY WASTES. IN ADDITION, TREATMENT TECHNOLOGY SHOULD BE SIMPLE, ROBUST, EFFIENENT, RELIABLE, AND CAPABLE OF TREATING ...

  2. A NATURAL OAT-DERIVED OIL SPILL DISPERSANT

    SBC: Basic Bio Systems Inc            Topic: N/A

    BASIC BIO SYSTEMS, INC., PROPOSES TO INVESTIGATE A NOVEL APPROACH TO OIL SPILL CLEANUP UTILIZING A NATURAL, OAT-DERIVED DISPERSANT. PROTEINACEOUS OAT FRACTIONS DEVELOPED BY BASIC BIO SYSTEMS, INC. HAVE THE ABILITY TO ABSORB SEVERAL TIMES THEIR WEIGHT OF A WIDE RANGE OF COMPOUNDS, INCLUDING HYDROPHOBIC MATERIALS SUCH AS OILS. INADDITION, THESE FRACTIONS CAN FUNCTION AS EFFECTIVE EMULSIFIERS, FORMIN ...

  3. DETOXIFICATION OF ACID MINE DRAINAGE USING HIGH PERFORMANCE CHELATION TECHNOLOGY

    SBC: Chromatochem Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE ABANDONED BERKELEY PIT COPPER MINE SITE IN BUTTE, MONTANA, IS A MAJOR COMPONENT OF THE BUTTE SILVERBOW CREEK SUPERFUND SITE. IT CONSISTS OF SEVERAL BILLION GALLONS OF ACID (PH 2-3) MINE DRAINAGE THAT IS CONTAMINATED WITH TOXIC LEVELS OF A VARIETY OF HEAVY METALS, ARSENIC, AND SULFURIC ACID. THE FLOW OF CONTAMINATED WATER INTO THE PIT IS ABOUT 7 MILLION GALLONS PER DAY. CHROMATOCHEM, INC., AND ...

  5. MICROBIAL REMOVAL OF ORGANIC SULFUR FROM COAL

    SBC: J.k. Research            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. POSSESSES HUGE COAL RESERVES, BUT SULFUR DIOXIDE (SO2) RELEASED UPON COMBUSTION IS A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO ACID RAIN. SIGNIFICANT ADVANCES HAVE BEEN MADE IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF MICROBIAL PROCESSES FOR PRECOMBUSTION REMOVALOF INORGANIC SULFUR FROM COAL. THIOBACILLUS AND SULFOLOBUS SP. HAVE BEEN MOST FREQUENTLY EMPLOYED. THEY ARE OPTIMALLY ADAPTED TO FUNCTION AT A PH BELOW 3 AND OFTEN AT ELEV ...

    SBIR Phase I 1989 Environmental Protection Agency
  6. BIOMECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF RECIPROCATING MOTION FOR DIS- ABLED INDIVIDUALS WHILE CYCLING

    SBC: Motion Transfer Cycling            Topic: N/A

    ALTHOUGH BICYCLES HAVE LONG BEEN USED IN THE REHABILITATION OF NEUROMUSCULAR AND MUCULOSKELETAL CONDITIONS FOR BOTH LOW-ER AND UPPER EXTREMITIES, LITTLE RESEARCH HAS BEEN DONE TO INVESTIGATE THE EFFECTS OF THE TRADITIONAL CIRCULAR CRANKINGMOTION ON PATIENT REHABILITATION. RETURNING A PATIENCT TO OPTIMUM FUNCTION REQUIRES A VARIETY OF MEASURES TO INCREASE STRENGTH, RANGE OF MOTION, ENDURANCE (BOTH ...

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Department of Education
  7. METAL VALUE RECOVERY FROM ALLOY CHEMICAL MILLING WASTE

    SBC: Montana Environment Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A PROPOSAL IS PRESENTED OUTLINING A RESEARCH STUDY DIRECTED TOWARD TREATMENT OF CHEMICAL MILLING WASTE FOR RECOVERY OF COBALT, CHROMIUM, AND NICKEL. THE APPLICATION OF A NEW TECH NOLOGY IS PROPOSED THAT IS SELECTIVE AND COST EFFECTIVE FOR RECOVERY OF THESE THREE ELEMENTS. THE PROCESS IS ON OF SOL SOLUTION PURIFICATION BY SELECTIVE PHOSPHATE PRECIPITATION. THE PRECIPITATION IS SELECTIVE TOWARD TRIV ...
