  2. BIODEGRADATION OF VOLATILE, HALOGENATED, ALIPHATIC COMPOUNDS

    SBC: Ecova Corp.            Topic: N/A

    VOLATILE HALOGENATED ALIPHATIC COMPOUNDS (VHALS) ARE PREDOMINANT CONTAMINANTS AT HAZARDOUS WASTE SITES. TRICHLOREOTHYLENE (TCE) IS THE MOST COMMONLY OCCURING COMPOUND IN THIS CLASS. THESE COMPOUNDS ARE PERSISTENT AND THEREFORE REQUIRE SOME FORM OF REMEDIATION OF REMOVAL. PRESENT TECHNOLOGY UTILIZES CARBON ADSORPTION, WHICH MEANS TRANSFERRING THE HAZARDOUS COMPOUNDS TO ANOTHER MEDIUM WHICHMUST BE D ...

  4. IMPROVED ALUMINUM REDUCTION TECHNOLOGY TO EXPLOIT NON-CONSUMABLE ANODES

    SBC: Electrochemical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A NEW CONCEPT OF A SLURRY ELECTROLYTE CELL FOR PRIMARY ALUMINUM EMPLOYING A NON-CONSUMABLE ANODE IS PRESENTED. THE FINE-PARTICLE ALUMINA SLURRY CONCEPT ALLOWS CELL OPERATION AT A TEMPERATURE OF 700 DEGREES CENTIGRADE AS COMPARED TO 950 DEGREES-980 DEGREES CENTIGRADE IN CONVENTIONAL HALL-HERAULT CELLS. THE LOWER OPERATING TEMPERATURE IS EXPECTED TO MAKE PRACTICAL THE STATE-OF-THE-ART CERMET ANODES ...

  5. FEASIBILITY STUDY OF MACHINING WITH ULTRAHIGH-PRESSURE DIRECTLY PUMPED ABRASIVE SLURRIES

    SBC: Flow Research Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE ABRASIVE-WATERJET (AWJ) TECHNOLOGY INTRODUCED INTO THE MARKETPLACE IN 1983 WAS A BREAKTHROUGH IN MACHINING PROCESSES, ESPECIALLY FOR HARD-TO-MACHINE BRITTLE MATERIALS AND EXOTIC ALLOYS AND COMPOSITES. THIS PROPOSAL ADDRESSES ANEW CONCEPT OF FORMING AWJS THAT MAY PROVE TO BE ANOTHER BREAKTHROUGH IN MACHINING TECHNOLOGY. PREMIXED SLURRIES WILL BE DIRECTLY PUMPED UP TO 55,000 PSI TO FORM JETS WIT ...

  8. BIOLOGICAL DISEASE CONTROL OF FUNGAL ROOT PATHOGENS IN FOREST NURSERIES

    SBC: Peninsu-lab            Topic: N/A

    THE U.S. FOREST SERVICE HAS DETERMINED THAT BECAUSE OF LONG-TERM HARMFUL EFFECTS TO THE ENVIRONMENT, AND HUMAN HEALTH RISKS, A REDUCTION IN THE USE OF CHEMICAL PESTICIDES IS NECESSARY. IN A DRAFT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STATEMENT (1989), THE FOREST SERVICE, PACIFIC NORTHWEST REGION, HAS ADOPTED A PEST MANAGEMENT POLICY WHICH WOULD GIVE PREFERENCETO NON-CHEMICAL PEST CONTROL MEASURES. UNFORTUNATELY, S ...
