Chrome Dry Plating to eliminate hazards and waste

Mandar Sunthankar, IonEdge

            The “zero-waste” dry plating technology is patented under the EPA SBIR program.  The technology involves plating chromium efficiently and economically without using liquid chemicals.

 

Capture of Chemical Byproducts

Al Weimer, University of Colorado at Boulder

This is a process for the capture if chemical byproducts of fossil fuel and petrochemical combustion by the molten salt catalyst.  Upon “capture,” detoxification of these toxic agents is catalyzed by the motel salts.  These chemicals include sulfur species (some of which are responsible for acid rain), toxic nitrogen derivatives, partially consumed hydrocarbons, and chlorine derivatives.  The technology can be used to purify emissions from power plants, hazardous waste facilities, and chemical manufacturing facilities.
