Abstract:

Environmental regulations on the handling and containment of toxic substances are constantly being made more rigorous. For example, pesticide applicators must have a handling and rinse containment pad installed. As cement cracks, the pad then becomes a hazardous generator and it is not impervious. To address many of the problems, the proposed Phase I research intends to investigate the technical and economic feasibility of using advanced composite materials to make a flexible portable handling and containment platform system for pesticide applicators and other handlers of toxic substances. The proposed system would not only protect the environment from undesired releases of the toxic chemicals, but would allow for any runoff or spillage to be collected and reused.
