Abstract:

WASTE PAINT SLUDGE IS GENERATED IN LARGE QUANTITIES BY AUTO-MOBILE, APPLIANCE, AND OTHER MANUFACTURERS AND A VAST MAJORITY OS IT IS BEING DISPOSED OF IN HJAZARDOUS LAND FILLS. PAST EFFORTS TO DISOPOSE OF THIS SLUDGE IN INCINERATORS HAVEMET WITH LIMITED SUCCESS. THIS HAZARDOUS WASTE STREAM GENERATION IS ESTIMATED AT 480 MILLION POUNDS PER YEAR. THE PROPOSED PHASE I PROGRAM IS TO DEMONSTRATE TECHNICAL AN INNOVATIVE TWO STAGE SINGE REACTOR FLUID BED PROCESS FORTHE EFFECTIVE DISPOSAL OF THIS WASTE STREAM. THE INVENTED PROCESS CONSISTS OF A MODEST TEMPERATURE PYRO- LYSIS OF THE PAINT ORGANICS FOLLOWED BY COMBUSTION OF THE ORGANIC VAPORS EVOLVED IN THE FREEBOARD OF THE FLUID BED. THE HIGHER TEMPERATURE FREEBOARD PROCESS PROVIDES THE ENERGYREQUIREMENTS OF THE FLUID BED PYROLYSIS PROCESS BY RADIATIONTO THE SURFACE OF THE FLUID BED. THIS PROCESS DEVELOPMENT, IF SUCCESSFUL, WILL PROVIDE A LOW COST, ENERGY EFFICIENT ON SITE, RELIABLE PROCESS OFR THE DI POSAL OF INDUSTRIAL PAINT SLUDGE WASTE. FEASIBILITY OF THE PROCESS WILL BE DETERMINED BY A PHASE I PROGRAM INVOLVING HEAT TRANSFER EXPERIMENTS, PROCESS CALCULATIONS, PILOT SCALETESTS, AND ANALYSIS AND CHARACTERIZATION OF RESIDUES. IF SUCCESSFUL, THIS PROJECT WILL SOLVE A MAJOR WASTE DIS- POSAL PROBLEM FOR THE AUTOMOTICE, APPLIANCE, AND OTHER MANU-FACTURING INDUSTRIES, RESULTING IN SAVINGS OF $100,000 TO $500,000 PER YEAR PER PLANT AND TOTAL MATIONWIDE WASTE REDUCTION OF UP TO 480 MILLION LBS/YEAR OF HAZARDOUS WASTE FROM HIGH PRODUCTION PAINTING. SUCCESSFUL PHASE I AND PHASE II PROGRAMS WILL RESULT IN INSTALLATION OF COST EFFECTIVE AUTO-MATED, COMPACT, FLUID BED SYSTEMS TO CONVERT PAINT SLUDGE WASTE TO ENERGY. THERE IS AN EXPEDTED MARKET OF $10,000,000PER YEAR FOR THESE UNITS.
