  1. CHLORINATED PLASTICS SEPARATION FROM MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE

    SBC: National Recovery Technologies LLC            Topic: N/A

    MUNICIPAL SOLID WASTE (MSW) PROVIDES A WASTE FUEL SOURCE HAVING POTENTIAL RECOVERABLE ENERGY OF OVER 1.5 QUADS PER YEAR.EXPANDED USE OF THIS FUEL SOURCE THROUGH ENERGY RECOVERY IN-INCINERATION OF MSW IS THREATENED BY THE PRESENCE OF CHLO- RINE IN MSW. CHLORINE IS A PRIMARY FACTOR IN THE FORMATION OF TOXIC CHLORINATED ORGANICS SUCH AS DOXINS AND FURANS. CHLORINE IS ALSO A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO ACID ...

  3. FEASIBILITY OF AN INTEGRATED CONTINUOUS PROCESS USING AUTO- MATIC INSTRUMENTATION AND STATAISTICAL ANALYSES TO REDUCE COSTS AND TO INCREASE THE EFFICIENCY OF PEAK DETECTION AND POLLUTION CONTROL IN UNDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS

    SBC: Production Monitoring &            Topic: N/A

    OVER THE LAST SEVERAL YEARS, THE EPA HAS DEVOTED MAJOR EF- FORTS TO IDENTIFY AND DOCUMENT THE MAGNITUDE OF THE RISKS OFENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION DUE TO LEAKING UDERGROUND STORAGE TANKS (UST). IN APRIL 1987, THE EPA PUBLISHED THE PROPOSED REGULATIONS FOR THE OWNERS AND OPERATORS OF UST, WHICH ARE EXPECTED TO BE FINALIZEDD IN EARLY 1988. THESE REGULATIONS INCLUDE REQUIREMENTS FOR TANK TIGHTNESS TESTS, ...

  4. DEV OF A LARGE CROSS SECTIONAL AREA SELF-POWERED DETECTOR

    SBC: K E M P CORP            Topic: N/A

    A SELF-POWERED RADIATION DETECTOR THAT CAN BE USED TO DETECTTHE SOURCE POSITION IN INDUSTRIAL RADIOGRAPHIC EQUIPMENT IS NEEDED. SELF-POWERED DETECTORS HAVE TRADITIONALLY BEEN USEDINFLUX MAPPING SYSTEMS IN NUCLEAR REACTORS BECAUSE OF THEIR SIZE, RUGGEDNESS AND SIMPLICITY. THIS DETECTOR CONCEP PROVIDES THE UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF LARGECROSS SECTIONAL AREA DETECTORS THATCAN BE USED ...

  5. EFFECT OF AGING ON RESPONSE TIME OF NUCLEAR PLANT PRESSURE SENSORS

    SBC: ANALYSIS AND MEASUREMENT SERVICES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    PERIODIC RESPONSE TIME TESTING HAS BEEN PERFORMED FOR THE PAST TWELVE YEARS ON THE SAFETY SYSTEM PRESSURE SENSORS IN MANY NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS. HOWEVER, THE RESULTS OF THESE TESTS ARE NOT RELIABLE FOR ASSESSMENT OF AGING EFFECTS. THEIS BECAUSE INADEQUATE METHODS AND PROCEDURES HAVE BEEN USED IN PERFORMING THE MAJORITY OF THE TESTS. THIS PROPOSAL OFFFERS AN EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH PROJECT TO PROVIDE ...

  6. MOBILE ZONE PAINT SPRAY BOOTH FOR REDUCTION OF VOC CONTAMINATED AIR

    SBC: Clyde Smith Engineer            Topic: N/A

    THE MOBILE ZONE DEVICE REPRESENTS ADVANCED WASTE REDUCTION TECHNOLOGY RATHER THAN A POLLUTION MANAGEMENT TECHNOLOGY. THE INNOVATIVE CONCEPT IS APPLICABLE TO VENTILATED WORK CHAMBERS WHERE THE VENTILATION IS PROVIDED FROM THE REMOVAL OF NOXIOUS FUMES AND/OR PARTICLES AND THE WORK CHAMBER IS PROVIDED FOR THE BENEFIT OF WORKER AND PRODUCT. THE MOST COMMON VENTILATED WORK CHAMBERS IN USE ARE SPRAY BOO ...

  7. IMPROVEMENTS IN MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE DESIGN AND PREDICTIVE MODELS FOR RELIABILITY IMPROVEMENTS IN NUCLEAR POWER PLANT SAFETY SYSTEMS

    SBC: Kalsi Engineering, Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    MOTOR OPERATED GATE VALVE OPERABILITY PROBLEMS AND FAILURES AT NUCLEAR POWER PLANTS ARE A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN AS STATEDIN NRC IE BULLETIN 85-03 AND GENERIC LETTER 89-10. THIS PROPOSAL IS AIMED AT IMPROVING GATE VALVE PERFORMANCE BY (1) DEVELOPING COMPREHENSIVE PERFORMANCE PREDICTION MODELS FOR USE OVER A RANGE OF OPERATING CONDITIONS, (2) DEFINING LIMITS, BASED ON SPECIFIC DESIGNS, BEYOND WHICH E ...

  8. STEAM REFORMING OF MUNICIPAL WASTEWATER SLUDGE

    SBC: Manufacturing And Technology Conversion Int'l, Inc            Topic: N/A

    THE MTIC INDIRECT STEAM REFORMING PROCESS OFFERS A COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO THE EXISTING WASTE-TO-ENERGY INCINERATION OF MUNICIPAL SLUDGE WASTE (MSW) OR REFUSE- DERIVED FUEL (RDF). THE PROCESS HAS THE POTENTIAL FOR RESOLVING MANY OF THE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH INCINERATION, ESPECIALLY IN THE CONTROL OF CHLORINATED DIOXINS AND FURANS AS WELL AS EMISSIONS OF TOXIC METALS; PARTICULA ...

  10. USE OF CERAMIC FUEL CLADDING TO REDUCE THE SEVERITY OF LMR ACCIDENTS

    SBC: Gamma Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROJECT INVESTIGATES THE FEASIBILITY OF USING CERAMIC CLADDING MATERIALS TO REPLACE THE METALLIC CLADDING MATERIALS NOW USED WITH WATER REACTOR FUEL. SHOULD FEASIBILITY BE DETERMINED, AND EVENTUALLY COMMERCIALIZED, THE ABILITY OF WATER REACTORS TO WITHSTAND SEVERE ACCIDENTS WOULD BE ENHANCED. WITH TODAYS METAL CLAD FUEL, A RELATIVELY SHORT TIME PERIOD IS AVAILABLE AFTER A LOSS OF COOLANT ACCI ...
