  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 ...

  6. SEPARTATION OF POST-CONSUMER PET AND PVC PLASTICS IN THE REGRIND FLAKE FORM

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    THE LAST THREE YEARS HAVE SEEN A DRAMATIC INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF COMPANIES PROCESSING POST-CONSUMER PLASTICS FROM PRODUCTS SUCH AS SOFT DRINK CONTAINERS, DETERGENT BOTTLES, MILK JUGS AND WATER BOTTLES. WHILE THIS HAS TO SOME EXTENT DIVERTED THESE MATERIALS FROM LANDFILLS, IT HAS CAUSED AN ECONOMIC ANOMALY. THE HIGH COSTS OF MANUALLY SORTING THE PLASTICS SO THEY CAN BE REPROCESSED MAKES THEM UNA ...

  7. APPLICATION OF ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE TO AUTOMATED RECYCLING

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    DIVERSION OF PLASTICS FROM LANDFILL TO RECYCLING CAN POTENTIALLY SAVE THE ENERGY EQUIVALENT OF 60 MILLION BARRELS OF OIL ANNUALLY AND REDUCE LANDFILL VOLUME REQUIRMENTS BY UP TO 20%. THE U.S. ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY HAS RECOMMENDED THAT SOURCE REDUCTION, RECYCLING, VOLUME REDUCTION, AND LANDFILLING BE APPLIED, IN THAT ORDER, IN THE TREATMENT OF MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE (MSW). RECYCLING HAS RE ...

  8. A PROCESS FOR INCREASING THE AMOUNT AND QUALITY OF RECYCLED PLASTICS RESINS

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    EACH YEAR, AMERICANS DISPOSE OF AN ESTIMATED 29 BILLION POUNDS OF PLASTICS WHICH CONSUME UP TO 20% OF OUR NATION'S ANNUAL LANDFILL CAPACITY. RECENT ENVIRONMENTAL AND POLITICAL PRESSURES HAVE LED TO RAPID ESTABLISHMENT OF PLASTICS RECYCLING FACILITIES. LIMITED MARKETS FOR LOW QUALITY RECYCLED RESINS REQUIRE RECLAIMERS TO PRODUCE THE HIGHEST QUALITY RECYCLED RESINS IN ORDER TO COMPETE WITH VIRGIN RE ...
