  1. FEASIBILITY OF BIODEGRADATION OF WASTE LIQUID COAL TAR

    SBC: Bioremediation Consulting,            Topic: N/A

    COAL TAR IS A BY-PRODUCT OF THE COAL GASIFICATION PROCESS USED WIDELY BETWEEN 1820 AND 1950 TO PRODUCE A NATURAL GAS SUBSTITUTE. DURING THAT TIME, BILLIONS OF GALLONS OF TAR WERE PRODUCED AT MORE THAN 1500 GAS MANUFACTURING FACILITIESLOCATED THROUGHOUT THE U.S. A LARGE PORTION OF THIS WASTE TAR REMAINS IN STORAGE OR WAS DISPOSED OF BY INJECTION INTO SUBSURFACE SITES. COAL TAR IS A MIXTURE OF HYDRO ...

  2. FEASIBILITY OF COAL TAR BIODEGRADATION BY COMPOSTING

    SBC: Cambridge Analytical Assoc Inc            Topic: N/A

    COAL TAR IS A BY-PRODUCT OF THE COAL GASIFICATION PROCESS USED BETWEEN 1880 AND 1950 TO PRODUCE A NATURAL GAS SUBSTITUTE. IT IS ESTIMATED THAT SEVERAL BILLION GALLONS OF THIS MATERIAL WERE LAND-DISPOSED AT OVER 1500 SITES IN THE UNITED STATES. THE TAR CONTAINS SEVENTEEN POLYNUCLEAR AROMATIC HYDROCARBONS (PAH) WHICH HAVE BEEN PLACED ON THE EPA PRIORITY POLLUTION LIST AS A RESULT OF THEIR MUTAGENICI ...

  3. RECOVERY OF CONTAMINANT METALS TO PERMIT RECYCLING OF DUSTS FROM ELECTRIC ARC FURNACES.

    SBC: Cato Research Corpon            Topic: N/A

    ELECTRIC ARC FURNACE DUST IS LISTED AS A HAZARDOUS WASTE. TOTAL PRODUCTION OF THIS DUST IS ESTIMATED TO BE 500,000 TONS AT SOME 77 LOCATION RANGING IN SCALE FORM LESS THAN 1,000 TONS TO OVER 20,000 TONS PER YEAR. A PROCESS IS PROPOSED WHICH MAY PERMIT ON-SITE, SIMPLE RECOVERY OF CONTAMINANT METALS IN THE DUST. THE PROCESS RECYCLES RECYCLES CHEMICAL REAGENTS AND AQUEOUS LEACH , MINIMIZIN COST AND A ...

  6. NEW SULFUR-SELECTIVE DETECTORS FOR GAS AND LIQUID CHROMATOG RAPHY BASED ON REACTIONS WITH FLUORINE

    SBC: Sievers Instruments, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW SELECTIVE DETECTORS FOR GAS AND LIQUID CHROMTOGRAPHY FOR THE SENSITIVE MEASUREMENT OF SULFUR-CONTAINING COMPOUNDS IS PROPOSED. THESE DETECTORS ARE BASEDON FLUORINE-INDUCED CHEMILUMINESCENCE AND ARE HIGHLY SE SELECTIVE FOR SULFIDES, DISULFIDES AND MERCAPTANS. THE MAJORRESEARCH PROPOSED IS THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW SOURCES OF FLU FLUORINE WHICH WILL BE SAFE, PROTABLE, AND LOW IN ...

  7. SENSITIVE AND SELECTIVE DETECTORS FOR GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY BASED ON CATALYSED REDOX CHEMILUMINESCENCE

    SBC: Sievers Instruments, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT AND EVALUATION OF NEW SELECTIVE AND SENSITIVE DETECTORS FOR GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY IS PROPOSED. THISINSTRUMENTATION WILL BE USED FOR THE DIRECT ANALYSIS OF ORGANIC COMPOUNDS AND FOR RAPID SCREENING FOR THE PRESENCE OF PARTICULAR CLASSES FO ORGANIC COMPOUNDS. THE DETECTORS ARE BASED ON METAL-CATALYZED OXIDATION/REDUCTION REACTIONS OF NO2 WITH ORGANIC REDUCING AGENTS. THE REDOX CHEMILUMI ...

  8. PHOTOCHEMICAL AMPLIFIER FOR GAS ACHROMATOGRAPHY BASED DETECTION OF SINGLET OXYGEN

    SBC: Sievers Instruments, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE DEVELOPMENT OF A NEW DETECTOR FOR GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY BASED ON PHOTOCHEMICAL AMPLIFICATION IS PROPOSED. IN THE PROPOSED SYSTEM, THE EFFLUENT OF THE GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY MIXED WITH A GAS STREAM CONTAINING OXYGEN AND ENTERS A PHOTOCHEMICAL REACTOR. ANALYTES WHICH ABSORB UV RADIATION ARE QUENCHED BY MOLICULAR OXYGEN TO FORM SINGLET OXYGEN WHICH ISSUBSEQUENTLY DETECTED SELECTIVELY BY PHOTOIONIZATION. ...
