Will The Market in Emission Allowances Work?
The Clean Air Act Amendments of 1990 introduce a major new control program to mitigate the impacts of acid rain. The control program, which has been under debate for approximately a decade,...

Projections for Reduction in Lake Acidification From SO2 Emission Reductions
The Acid Deposition Assessment Model (ADAM) is used to assess the possible range of effects of a national acid rain emission reduction plan on lake chemistry and fish populations in the...

Evaluating Advanced Technologies for Acid Rain Compliance
Technological innovation in emissions control of acid rain precursors has made possible increasingly stringent control requirements for coal-fired power plants. A key challenge for potential...

Optimization Models for Acid Rain Control
A series of related optimization formulations are presented for developing and analyzing acid rain control strategies. These models span a wide array of approaches and reflect a similarly...

Acid Mine Drainage Control Utilizing Fly Ash
Acid mine drainage is a serious environmental problem confronting the Appalachian region. Fly ash, the air particulate residual from the combustion of coal, is also an environmental concern...

Overview of Acid Mine Drainage Control Strategies
Since 1970, regulations requiring proper overburden sampling techniques to obtain representative geologic profiles and outline specific overburden analysis to determine acid-producing,...

Formic Acid Requirement for Savannah River Site Defense Waste Processing Facility Melter Feed Preparation (U)
The Westinghouse Savannah River Company (WSRC) will vitrify the high-level radioactive waste into a borosilicate glass wasteform using a slurry-fed, joule-heated melter. Formic acid is...

The Processing of Simulated High-Level Radioactive Waste Sludges Containing Nitrites and Mercury
The reaction of formic acid with simulated alkaline sludge containing mercury and nitrite was studied in an engineering-scale facility. Quantification of offgas production was performed,...

Energy in the 90's
This proceedings consists of papers presented at the specialty conference Energy in the Nineties which was sponsored by the Energy Division of the American Society of Civil Engineers and...

Physical-Chemical Evaluation of Rainwater as an Indicator of Atmospheric Pollution in Some Zones of the City of Maracaibo, Venezuela
This study provided an evaluation of the presence of pollutants in the air over the City of Maracaibo by means of a physical-chemical analysis of rainwater collected in four zones of the...

Acidic Polysaccharides from Marine Organisms
Different types of acidic polysaccharides have been extracted from various marine organisms. The chemical composition and structural studies of these molecules established that the main...

Interruption of Sewer Crown Corrosion?Ecological Solutions
Competitive inhibition of acid production by thiobacilli was investigated by encouraging the growth of potential competitors. Two-organism competition experiments (Thiobacillus sp. vs....

The Effect of Operational Parameters on the Acid-phase Anaerobic Fermentation in the Biological Phosphorus Removal Process
A series of laboratory-scale, continuous flow experiments has been employed to study the effects of selected HRTs and SRTs on the acid-phase fermentation of primary sludge. The VFA production...

Chemical Sludge Treatment?A Way of the Future
Recently, chemical treatment of municipal sludges has become an alternative to incineration, composting, and digestion. The commercial processes have evolved into three categories of chemical...

Influence of the Deposition of Anthropogenic Organic Substances from the Atmosphere on Ground-Water Quality
Large amounts of organic substances are emitted into the atmosphere as a consequence of human activity. The primary emissions as well as their atmospheric reaction products reach the soil...

Kinetics of the Oxidation of Sulfonic Acids by Hydroxyl Radicals in Aqueous Solution

The Effects of Acidic Runoff on Aluminum in Streams

Cleaning Up Coal
Coal, which fueled the industrial revolution in the 19th century and two wars in the 20th, should continue to be a major power source well into the 21st century. Its abundance keeps the...
