Abstract:

ARMY NATICK RESEARCH HAS FOUND THAT A SUPERACTIVATED CARBON WITH BET SURFACE AREAS GREATER THAN 3000 METERS SQUARED PER GRAM HAS POTENTIAL APPLICATION IN THE PRODUCTION OF SUPERIOR CHEMICAL PROTECTION EQUIPMENT FOR BATTLEFIELD PERSONNEL. THIS CARBON, ORIGINALLY DEVELOPED BY AMOCO CORPORATION, IS PRODUCED BY A UNIQUE HIGH TEMPERATURE CAUSTIC ACTIVATION PROCESS AND IS NOT CURRENTLY AVAILABLE FROM DOMESTIC SOURCES. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE WORK PROPOSED IS TO DEVELOP A COMPETENT, SCALABLE, UP-TO-DATE PROCESS DESIGN FOR PRODUCTION OF THIS MATERIAL. THE PROPOSING FIRM (ARCANUM CORP.)

THE PLAN OF WORK IS TO MAKE EXTENSIVE USE OF THE INFORMATION CONTAINED IN THE ORIGINAL AMOCO DEVELOPMENT FILES AND TO INVESTIGATE RECENT ADVANCES IN CAUSTIC RECYCLE TECHNOLOGY THAT MAY HAVE SIGNIFICANT IMPACT ON PROCESS ECONOMICS.
