  • The Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) now views its licensing procedures as an important element of technology transfer from the laboratory to the manufacturer, after shifting over the years from a position of not targeting commericialization dates. Patent selection applies strict criteria to reassure potential licensees, while EPRI's nonprofit status requires that its research be made available on a nondiscriminatory basis. Accepted patents are published, and prospective licensees are matched before a licensing agreement is signed. (DCK)
  • The information and data discussed are drawn from a Harris survey on consumer affairs and the consumer movement entitled ''Consumerism at the Crossroads,'' the third in a series commissioned by Sentry Insurance. Throughout, the survey shows how deeply the public is disillusioned with business and how skeptical it is of business' motives. The profit motive is seen to be so strong that 71% of the public feel that ''business will do nothing much to help the consumer if that reduces profits significantly--unless it is forced to do so.'' And most of the leadership groups interviewed agreed. The only exceptions weremore » the two samples of business management--senior business executives and consumer affairs executives. But this hostility to business is not a rejection of the free enterprise system. The public, most emphatically, does not want government to take over and run its own business enterprises. To the contrary, there is a very strong belief among the public in the value of the free market and the benefits of competition. It is concluded that consumers in America appear to have decided that they can only make their desires known and their weight felt by participating in the marketplace. (MCW)« less
  • To encourage the achievement of clean air standards, EPA has proposed new pollution reduction methods and incentives. The mechanics and costs of the bubbling process are outlined. Cost savings and procedural format from offset arrangements, pollution banking, and emission fees are described. The new approaches are flexible and should encourage industries to participate in developing implementation procedures at the state level. (3 diagrams)
  • An agreement is reported to have been reached between The Colorado School of Mines and Methanol Inc. to build commercial-scale units that would produce about 6 million gal/year of methanol from 122 tons/d of wood chips, cotton-gin wastes, or other biomass material. The process is based on downdraft gasifiers with the product gas being converted to methanol by conventional technology. The unique feature is that the highest temperature in the gasification system occurs in the area where the solid is fed, the lowest temperature is at the grate, causing the product gas leaving the bottom of the reactor to bemore » in equilibrium with the combusted ash.« less
  • In 1985 American Solar King Corporation began retail sales of its Energymaster Cooling, Heating, and Ventilating System. The open cycle desiccant unit had been under development since 1982.
