Radical Environmentalism, The New Approach: The Removal of Oil as a Primary Goal of Oil Spill Clean Up
In this paper the author examines the alternative methods of abating a catastrophic oil spill and compares these methods to the controlled burning of an oil spill using a fire-resistant...

Clearing Space Debris Using Energetic Materials
Space debris is growing at an alarming rate. It consists not only of old, unusable payloads but also aluminum oxide combustion products of various space delivery systems and small fragments...

Laser Ignition of Oil Spills: A History

Pressure Rise From Liquid Combustibles

Power Without Acid
Anticipating tighter acid rain controls, DOE is developing duct injection units that can be attached to existing powerplants. In a typical duct injection system, lime is sprayed into existing...

Recent Progress in Coal Ash Utilization and the Effect of Environmental Issues and Regulations
This paper summarizes for civil engineers several publications that help to specify and use coal combustion by-products in construction and other applications in a technically sound, commercially...

Waste Processing: Makes Good Energy
Materials separation in solid wastes streams will generate more BTU's at waste-to-energy facilities. The removal of noncombustibles like bottles, batteries and refrigerators...

EPA Municipal Waste Combustion Activities
In many areas of the country, existing municipal waste landfills are reaching capacity. Land for new landfills or expansions is scarce and expensive, and municipalities would generally...

The National Incinerator Testing & Evaluation Program
Environment Canada, under the National Incinerator Testing & Evaluation Program (NITEP), is addressing emissions from municipal energy-from-waste combustion systems. The main thrust...

Combustion Sources of Residential Air Pollution: An Overview
Combustion by-products are a major source of indoor air pollution and have been measured in homes at levels above typical outdoor concentrations, and at levels which approach or exceed...

Incinerating Dioxin Contaminated Waste at the USEPA Combustion Research Facility
The objective of the tests reported herein was to evaluate the incinerability of the toluene stillbottoms by determining whether 99. 9999% DRE could be achieved. All tests were performed...

Multiple-Hearth and Fluid Bed Sludge Incinerators
This paper presents recommended practices for design and operation of multiple-hearth and fluid bed furnace systems for combustion of sludges in order to eliminate or mitigate the problems...

Current Status of Flue GasDesulfurization in the United States
Flue gas desulfurization (FGD) systems have been in existence in the United States for only 17 years but they have made a tremendous impact in the operation of utility plants. At present,...

Electrically Fired Incinerator System for Combustible Radioactive Waste
DuPont Company and Shirco, Inc. are developing a process to incinerate plutonium-contaminated combustible waste in an electrically fired incineration system. Preliminary development was...
