  1. ROBOTIC INSPECTION OF CRUDE OIL CARRIER TANKS

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    THE INSPECTION OF VERY LARGE CRUDE CARRIERS (VLCC) FOR STRUCTURAL RELIABILITY IS AN IMPORTANT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN. THESE LARGE VESSELS TRANSPORT CRUDE OIL IN SUCH QUANTITIES THAT THE CONSEQUENCE OF AN OIL SPILL DUE TO A BROKEN WELD ARE VERY SERIOUS. IMPROVED TECHNIQUES ARE NEEDED TO INSPECT VLCC TANKS FOR DEFECTS SUCH AS CRACKS IN SEAMS, CORROSION AND FAILED STRUCTURAL MEMBERS. THE COST OF INSPE ...

  3. SAFE, ENVIRONMENTALLY ACCEPTABLE RESOURCES RECOVERY FROM OIL REFINERY SLUDGE

    SBC: Calderon Energy Company Of            Topic: N/A

    PETROLEUM REFINERIES ARE UNAVOIDABLY GENERATING WASTE STREAMS OF OIL SLUDGE IN THE AMOUNT OF APPROXIMATELY 30,000 TONS PER YEAR PER REFINERY. THE WASTE STREAM COMPRISES SEDIMENT FROM STORAGE TANKS, BOTTOMS FROM DISTILLATION UNITS, SPENT CATALYST, AND WASTE WATER. DISPOSAL OF THIS REFINERY SLUDGE IS A CHALLENGE TO THE PETROLEUM INDUSTRY. CALDERON ENERGY COMPANY OF BOWLING GREEN, INC., BELIEVES IT W ...

  4. RECYCLING OF SOLID ZINC PHOSPHATING PROCESS WASTE

    SBC: Chemical Reclamation Tech            Topic: N/A

    A METHOD FOR RECYCLING ZINC PHOSPHATING PROCESS WASTE IS PROPOSED. ABOUT THREE MILLION POUNDS OF SOLID CHEMICAL WASTE IS GENERATED ANNUALLY FROM ZINC PHOSPHATING IN NORTH AMERICA. THE WASTE IS AN INORGANIC MIXED ZINC/IRON TERTIARY SALT OF PHOSPHORIC ACID. TOXICITY LEVELS VARY BUT MOST WASTES CONTAIN NICKEL, CHROME, LEAD, AND OTHER TOXINS IN SMALL QUANTITIES. THE METHOD DEPENDS UPON CONTINUOUS REMO ...

  6. NOVEL CHEMICAL PROCESS FOR BLEACHING DE-INKED PULP

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE PROPOSAL RESPONDS TO THE INCREASING PRESSURE TO RECYCLE PAPER. SINCE NONBLEACHED PAPER USES ALMOST 100% RECYCLE PULP, ADDITIONAL RECYCLING MUST COME FROM BLEACHING RECYCLEDPULP TO BE SUITABLE FOR NEWSPRINT AND WHITE PAPER. THE OBJECTIVE OF THE EXPERIMENTS IS TO DEMONSTRATE THE FEASIBILITY OF BLEACHING RECYCLED PULP WITH A UNIQUE CHEMICAL MIXTURE. THE EXPERIMENTS WILL USE SAMPLES OF COMMERCIAL ...

  7. SCRAP TIRE PYROLYSIS-- PRODUCTION OF HIGHLY ENHANCED MARKETABLE PRODUCTS

    SBC: Hichem Corp.            Topic: N/A

    RESEARCH WILL BE CONDUCTED BY HICHEM CORPORATION, TO DEVELOP A NEW TECHNOLOGY FOR PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES. DISPOSAL OF USED TIRES IS A BIG PROBLEM IN THE WORLD, ESPECIALLY USA, SINCE MORE THAN 2.5 MILLION TIRES ARE DISCARDED EACH YEAR. MOST OF THESE TIRES ARE DISPOSED IN LANDFILLS. PYROLYSIS OF SCRAP TIRES HELPS TO RECOVER AND REUSE MOST OF THE VALUABLE CHEMICAL AVAILABLE IN TIRES. PYROLYSIS OF S ...

  9. DEVELOPMENT OF REGENERABLE HOT-GAS DESULFURIZATION SORBENTS WITH IMPROVED POLLUTANT CAPTURE PROPERTIES

    SBC: Remsa Inc            Topic: N/A

    CURRENTLY, COAL AND RESIDUAL OIL-FIRED, STEAM-ELECTRIC STATIONS ARE THE LARGEST SOURCE OF ATMOSPHERIC SULFUR DIOXIDE POLLUTANTS. THE FRACTIONAL CONTRIBUTION OF SULFUR OXIDE EMISSIONS FROM COAL IS GREATER THAN ITS FRACTION FROM OIL USED IN POWER GENERATION SINCE THE SULFUR CONTENT OF MOST OF THE COAL IS HIGHER. AMONG THE VARIOUS ALTERNATIVES THAT MAY BE USED TO REDUCE THE SULFUR OXIDE POLLUTION CAU ...
