Technique for Removal of Organics & Dissolved Solids from Aqueous Medias Via Supercritical Treatment [ID 12008]
OverviewHorizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing utilize a fluid to stimulate shale gas formations and prevent fractures from collapsing. The fracking fluid is a mixture of freshwater, chemical additives, and proppant (typically sand). 2-4 million gallons of this fluid are required for each fracking site and almost all of this fluid is returned...

Simultaneous Removal of Ammonia, Urea, & Metals from Water [ID 09029]
OverviewAmmonia, urea, and metals are all species that are commonly presented in wastewater that is derived from different sources. There are different processes that facilitate the removal of these species individually, including ion exchange, reverse osmosis, electro-winning, etc. However, none of these processes possess the ability to remove all...

Electrocatalysts & Additives for the Oxidization of Solid Fuels [ID 05011]
OverviewHydrogen is expected to be the primary energy source in the 21st century for electricity generation, fuel, and other applications. It is an environmentally clean source of energy since it generates no pollutants. Fossil fuels and water are the major inputs for the manufacture of hydrogen. These inputs and their required processes, however, are...

Biological Remediation of Green House Gas Emissions [ID: 98104]
OverviewThe technology is a cost effective mechanism that removes substantial amounts of CO2 from the gaseous effluents of scrubbed fossil-fired power plants. The process is facilitated by the use of algae that have been grown on fabric sheets in a high temperature (thermophilic) environment. The algae are located in a separate chamber downstream of...
