  1. ELECTROTHERMAL REFORMING OF HAZARDOUS ORGANICS AND WATER- SOLUBLE WASTES

    SBC: A1-chem Fuels Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A1-CHEM FUELS, INC. HAS A PATENT PENDING FOR AN ELECTROTHER-MAL DEVICE TO PRODUCE MEDIUM TO HIGH BTU FUEL GAS FROM WASTEHYDROCARBON SOURCES. THIS UNIT OPERATES BY PRODUCING A HIGH-VOLTAGE ALTERNATING CURRENT ELECTRIC DISCHARGE ACROSS THE INTERFACE BETWEEN A WASTE HYDROCARBON AND WATER. THE EXTREMELY HIGH TEMPERATURE WITHIN THE ELECTRICAL DISCHARGE IS SUFFICIENT TO CAUSE LOCALIZED FAST PYROLYSIS OF ...

  2. PROCESSING OF SPENT PETROLEUM RESID DESULFURIZATION CATA- LYSTS FOR VALUE RECOVERY AND HAZARDOUS WASTE ELIMINATION

    SBC: Chemical & Metal Industries, I            Topic: N/A

    ABOUT 28 MILLION POUNDS OF SPENT HYDROTREATING CATALYST CONTAINING $23,000,000 IN RECOVERABLE CHEMICALS WAS DIS POSED OF IN THE UNITED STATES DURING 1985. ONLY 20% OF THE SPENT CATALYST UNDERWENT SOME FORM OF RECLAMATION PROCESS- ING. THE AMOUNT OF SPENT HYDROTREATING CATALYST REQUIRING DISPOSAL IS EXPECTED TO DOUBLE BY 1994 WITH THE EX DISPOSAL IS EXPECTED TO DOUBLE BY 1994 WITH THE HYDRODESUL- F ...

  3. A STAGED FLUID BED CONTACTOR FOR THE ECONOMIC THERMAL DESTRUCTION OF TOXIC CHEMICALS ON SOILS

    SBC: EERGC CORP.            Topic: N/A

    THE COST FOR REMOVING TOXIC CHEMICALS FROM THE SOIL WITH PRESENT TECHNOLOGY IS ENORMOUS, IN SOME CASES, POPULATIONS THE COST FOR REMOVING TOXIC CHEMICALS FROM THE SOIL WITH PRESENT TECHNOLOGY IS ENORMOUS. IN SOME CASES, POPULATIONS MUST BE RELOCATED AND MANY ACRE-FEET OF SOIL MUST BE EXCAVA-TED AND TREATED OR STORED IN "SAFE" STORAGE FACILITIES. IM-PROVED TECHNOLOGY IS NEEDED TO REDUCE CLEAN-UP CO ...

  4. COMPREHENSIVE AIR POLLUTION CONTROL USING THE ELECTRON BEAM PROCESS

    SBC: Energy Sciences Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN THIS RESEARCH, AN ELECTRON BEAM PROCESS WILL BE INVESTI- GATED WHICH HAS THE POTENTIAL TO DESTROY TOXIC MOLECULES SUCH AS DIOXINS, FURANS, AND POLYNUCLEAR AROMATIC HYDROCAR- CARBONS PRODUCED, FOR EXAMPLE, BY THE INCINERATION OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE. SOME ISOMERS OF THESE COMPOUNDS ARE HIGHLY TOXIC; THEREFORE,THE WORK WILL BE ACCOMPLISHED USING NON-TOXIC MODEL COMPOUNDS EXHIBITING CHEMICAL FUNC ...

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Environmental Protection Agency
  5. DECOMPOSITION OF HIGH CONCENTRATION AQUEOUS TRICHLOROETHYLENE DERIVED FROM A PROPOSED SUPER FUND SITE BYSOLAR OR UV IRRADIATED PHOTOCATALYSTS

    SBC: Photo-catalytics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF SOLAR AND/OR ARTIFICIALLY IRRADIATED SEMICONDUCTOR POWDERS TO PHOTOCATALYTICALLY MINERALIZE 12-400 PPM TRICHLOROETHYLENE (TCE) CONTAMINATED WATER OBTAINED FROM A CANDIDATE SUPERFUND SITE IS PROPOSED. THESESEMICONDUCTOR POWDERS ARE INEXPENSIVE, NONTOXIC, RECYCABLE AND HAVE BEEN SUCCESSFULLY EMPLOYED TO MINERALIZE TCE, PENTACHLOROPHENOL AND MANY OTHER HALOGENATED HYDROCARBONS RAPIDLY. THE ...

  6. ADDITIVES FOR NOX EMMISSIONS CONTROL FROM FIXED SOURCES

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Environmental Protection Agency
  7. FEASIBILITY OF AN INTEGRATED CONTINUOUS PROCESS USING AUTO- MATIC INSTRUMENTATION AND STATAISTICAL ANALYSES TO REDUCE COSTS AND TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF PEAK DETECTION AND POLLUTION CONTROL IN UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS

    SBC: Production Monitoring &            Topic: N/A

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Environmental Protection Agency
  8. MATERIALS FOR SELECTIVE ABSORPTION OF CARBON MONOXIDE

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

    N/A

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Environmental Protection Agency
  9. TECHNOLOGY FOR DETOXIFYING SOLID AND LIQUID ORGANIC WASTE

    SBC: Synlize Inc            Topic: N/A

    IN PHASE I, RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED TO DEVELOP AN AP- PROACH FOR A NEW COST-EFFECTIVE TECHNOLOGY TO MINERALIZE A WIDE VARIETY OF TOXIC ORGANIC COMPOUNDS WHICH OCCUR IN LARGEAMOUNTS IN SOLID AND LIQUID INDUSTRIAL WATES. THIS APPROACH EMPLOYS PHOTOPROMOTED SOLID-CATALYZED OXIDATIVE DEGRADATION TO CONVERT THE TOXIC COMPOUNDS TO EN- VIRONMENTALLY COMPATIBLE PRODUCTS, NAMELY, CO2 FROM CHEMICALLY BOU ...

    SBIR Phase I 1988 Environmental Protection Agency
  10. ON-BOARD DIMTHYL ETHER GENERATION TO REDUCE METHANOL FUELEDVEHICLE EMISSIONS DURING COLD OPERATION

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE USE OF METHANOL AS A LOW EMISSIONS, ALTERNATE FUEL TO GASOLINE AND DIESEL FUEL MAY BE LIMITED BY DIFFICULT COLD STARTING AND HIGH CO AND UNBURNED HYDROCARBONS DURING COLD OPERATION OF METHANOL-FUELED ENGINES. A FUELED VEHICLE TO PRODUCE DIMETHYL ETHER AND TO METER THE HIGHLY VOLATILE DIMETHYL ETHER INTO THE ENGINE TO ASSIST THE COLD STARTING AND COLD OPERATION. EXPERIMENTS WILL BE DONE TO MEAS ...
