  • This paper reports on a study of microbiologically influenced corrosion (MIC) and its mitigation in gas industry facilities. The results show that MIC commonly occurs on both external and internal surfaces of pipes, in down hole tubulars and in process equipment such as separators. Mitigation strategies were tested in side-stream devices at several sites. The results demonstrate that many biocides and corrosion inhibitors are relatively ineffective in controlling the surface microbial populations, at least under the conditions of the tests. Detailed studies with glutaraldehyde demonstrated that reestablishment of surface MIC communities after removal of this biocide was very rapid. Continuousmore » treatment with glutaraldehyde led to the development of surface microbial communities resistant to the effects of the biocide.« less
  • The methods and costs of measures to restore acidified water areas or prevent further acidification to lakes and streams in Sweden are presented, along with the results of a five-year liming test period. The reduction of sulfur emissions is considered in terms of reducing sulfur content in home heating oils to a 1% maximum, the use of purifiers in industry, and international cooperation to reduce transboundary pollution. A total of over 300 liming projects consuming more than 200,000 tons of liming agents were placed in waters, in bogs and on farms, and on marshes, nominally by use of a centrifugalmore » distributor on land and various spreading methods on water, principally with crushed limestone. Other methods are suggested, and liming results were found to be an improvement of farm soil fertility, a decrease in forest growth, and positive effects on fish populations. Full scale liming is recommended wherever natural buffering has been found to be insufficient.« less
  • This paper describes the strategies used by Westinghouse Hanford Company for implementing a new U.S. Department of Energy Order 5480.28, Natural Phenomena Hazards Mitigation. The order requires that all new and existing structures, systems, and components be designed and evaluated for the effects of natural phenomena (seismic, wind, flood, and volcano) applicable at a given site. It also requires that instrumentation be available to record the expected seismic events and that procedures be available to inspect facilities for damage following a natural phenomena event. This order requires that probabilistic hazards studies be conducted for the applicable natural phenomena to determinemore » appropriate loads to be applied in a graded approach to structures, systems, and components important to safety. This paper discusses the processes, tasks, and methods used to implement this directive, which altered the standard design basis for new and existing structures, systems, and components at the Hanford Site. It also addresses a correlation between the performance category nomenclature of DOE Order 5480.28 and the safety classification described in DOE Order 5480.23, Nuclear Safety Analysis Reports. This correlation was deemed to be a prerequisite for the cost-effective implementation of the new DOE Order on natural phenomena hazards mitigation.« less
  • This conference was held April 5--8, 1994 in Phoenix, Arizona for the purpose of providing a forum for exchange of state-of-the-art information relating to the global climate change. Human activities are increasing the concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. The buildup of greenhouse gases threatens to change the global climate system, perhaps raising sea levels, inflicting irreversible damage to ecosystems, and de-stabilizing agricultural production. Individual papers have been processed separately for inclusion in the appropriate data bases.
  • Anthropogenic emissions of CH{sub 4} account for 70% of total global emissions of this greenhouse gas. Current anthropogenic emissions of CH{sub 4} in the US are estimated to be between 24-30 Tg CH{sub 4} or 7-9% of the global anthropogenic total. By comparison the US is responsible for 27% of anthropogenic emissions of CO{sub 2} from fossil fuel use. Table 1 shows that the major anthropogenic sources of CH{sub 4} in the US are landfills (37%), domestic livestock and livestock waste (31%) and the coal mining/natural gas/petroleum industries (28%). On a global basis it is estimated that US landfills contributemore » 30% to the global landfill total, whereas livestock (including waste) and the coal mining/natural gas/petroleum industries each contribute about 8% to their respective global totals. The US is an insignificant contributor (< 1%) to global emissions of CH{sub 4} from rice paddies.« less
