Title: Critical Technology List update. Final technical report

Abstract

ICRC has reviewed and updated its List of critical technology. The List comprises all proposed SRC-I Demonstration Plant equipment whose use has been determined to involve some degree of potential safety, performance, or environmental risk. ICRC has subjected equipment on the Critical Technology c to special technical review to ensure the highest possible level of quality and lowest cost commensurate with acceptable overall risks. Equipment or equipment systems still considered to be high risk are the following: Coal Slurry/Hot Oil Heat Exchangers, Coal Slurry Heaters, Second-Stage Feed Heaters, Vacuum Tower Heater, Vacuum Column, SRC/Light SRC Stripper - CSD, Severe Service Valves, Wastewater Reuse System, and the Solid Waste Disposal System. Equipment systems or pieces of equipment that have been downgraded to a lower risk category are the following: Coal Weigh-Feed System, Coal Slurry Dissolvers, Coal Dissolver Effluent Separator, and LC-Fining Reactors. Finally, ICRC has determined that many types of equipment are no longer Critical Technology, and has therefore removed them from the List.

  • The document focuses on the technical requirements that have been developed to determine the completion of cleanup at Superfund sites and the subsequent procedural requirements for deleting sites from the National Priorities List (NPL). The guidance does not apply to sites that are removed from the NPL so that action can be taken under a different authority or to proposed sites that do not get placed on the final NPL. Expected users of the document include EPA personnel, states, and responsible parties involved in completion of cleanup activities at Superfund sites. The roles and responsibilities of all parties are hereinmore » described.« less
  • The present volume is the second major deliverable of the title study. This volume is organized into three parts: (A) Gaseous Effluents Control Technology and Sewage Engineering; (B) Liquid Effluents Control Technology and Sewage Engineering; and (C) Solid Waste Disposal Technology. In Part A, the key types of gaseous effluents and particulates controls are qualitatively described. These types of controls are: Baghouses; Cyclones; Wet Collection Devices; Water Sprays; and Electrostatic Precipitation. In addition to the above control technologies applicable in general to most gaseous effluents and particulates, specific treatment has been given to the control technologies particularly applicable to threemore » specific gaseous pollutants of great concern to the oil shale industry. These pollutants are: Hydrocarbons; NO/sub x/; and Sulfur. Part B qualitatively describes the key types of control technologies applicable to liquid effluents. These technologies are: Ion Exchange; Precipitation and Coagulation (Flocculation); Distillation; Steam Stripping; Sedimentation; Filtration; Adsorption; Reverse Osmosis; Flotation; Air Stripping Ammonia Removal; Stabilization Ponds; Chemical Oxidation; Biological (Trickling) Filtration; Activated Sludge; and Nitrogen (Ammonia) Wastewater Controls. A systematic effort was made in the description of each technology to address two key issues: Operating principles of the controls method and field of applications of the controls method. The Part C of the present study focuses on technologies applicable to treatment of hazardous solid wastes. Again, operating principles and field of application are discussed, whereas numerical performance data are omitted.« less
  • The objective of this report is to provide an overview of the current status of powder-coating technology. Because powder coatings are applied as dry, finely divided particles, there are no volatile organic compounds (VOC's) released during application, and only minute quantities are released during the curing process. Therefore, the increased use of powder coatings, as an alternative to liquid solvent-based coatings, represents a significant reduction in emissions of VOC's. The report describes current powder-coating materials and equipment, end uses, and economic advantages of the use of powder coatings. Included in the report are discussions of the disadvantages and potential problemsmore » identified early in the powder-coating-development process. The report addresses the resolutions of many of these problems. The report is intended to be of use to State and local agencies in their evaluation of powder coatings as an alternative to coatings containing VOC's.« less
  • The long-term performance tests provide information on the first follow-up sampling and analysis on the SITE program demonstration of the International Waste Technologies additive, and the Geo-Con deep soil mixing equipment. The samples containing PCBs, were collected one year after the demonstration, and the chemical and physical test results were compared to those obtained during the demonstration. This was the first part of a 5-year monitoring program on this in-situ stabilization/solidification process. The demonstration was performed in April 1988 at an electric service shop in Hialeah, FL. Volume 4 contains the technical operating data--logs, laboratory analyses, and microstructural analyses.
  • This report reviews, assesses, and summarizes the research and development status and progress of advanced diesel engine/vehicle components technology. This report is a logical extension of a previous report, AFWAL-TR-80-2014, which identified vehicular diesel-engine technology applicable to diesel-powered electrical-generator sets. The previous report discussed variable-area turbocharging, variable compression-ratio piston, high-pressure fuel-injection systems, turbocompounding, the adiabatic engine, and the Rankine bottoming cycle. This report adds discussion on alternative fuel, technology forecasting, engine cycle analysis, and cogneration.
