Technology Transfier from DOE for Greener Environment and Manufacturing

Tech transfer for environmental remediation, security, process control, equipment, maintenance, energy and waste management

Find green business solutions
Want a green tech business with extra punch? Consider "technology transfer" from government programs such as the Savannah River National Laboratory.

This Department of Energy laboratory and industrial site develops high level technologies for environmental cleanup, in addition to their other duties.

DOE Patents Available for Technology Transfer to Business

The SRNL has patents available for transfer to the private sector in the following areas:
  • Environmental Remediation
  • Homeland Security and Public Safety
  • Industrial Process Control
  • Laboratory Equipment
  • Plant Maintenance
  • Tomorrow's Energy Source
  • Waste Management
Here are some of the technologies available fro Waste Management:

BioWave Rubber Treatment to create recycled rubber content

BioWave™ Rubber Treatment Method treats crumb rubber with a two-stage method combining microbial oxidation and microwave energy. The resulting treated crumb rubber can be mixed with new rubber to create tires containing 20 percent or more recycled rubber.

Microwave Vitrification of Waste

This invention uses microwave energy to process electronic circuitry, equipment, and computers. This method enables the recovery of valuable metals and reduces the volume of waste for ultimate disposal. In the U.S., 65,000 cell phones are discarded each year. An estimated 315 million computers were discarded in 2004. Electronic equipment contributes significant levels of mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and selenium to landfill leachate. These toxic materials pose a health threat when they are released into the environment. With its ability to reduce the volume and weight of electronic components and to recover precious metals contained therein, the technology should have a significant market.

Microwave Off-Gas Treatment System

This invention is a simple way to reduce contaminants -- a unique system for treatment of off gases, or hazardous emissions, for safe discharge to the atmosphere. The system is compact and portable and is designed to treat emissions from a wide variety of thermal processes. The system can be configured for small-scale, batch operations or large-volume, continuous operations.
