A feasibility analysis of incinerator systems for restoration of oil contaminated beaches by R. M Roberts( Book )

1 edition published in 1970 in English and held by 108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The feasibility of employing a combustion process for restoring oil contaminated beaches was investigated. Beach access problems and the handling characteristics of shore materials limited the potential application to recreational (sand) sites. Thermodynamic arguments required that a system design be adopted in which the contaminated sand would undergo combustive processing in a confined arrangement. The design selected, from those analyzed, proved to be a three-effect combustor based on the rotary kiln principle. Provided that the sand to be cleaned is carefully enough collected to furnish a reasonable (>̲6%) oil content and is moved away from the surf and drained to an acceptable moisture level (<̲6%), basic processing costs would be highly attractive. In comparison with uncontaminated sand, the cleaned product exhibits only a slightly greyish hue

Solid waste management options for Naval installations on Guam : final report by R. M Roberts( Book )

3 editions published in 1984 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Navy's solid waste (SW) management operations and energy production/distribution systems on the island of Guam were inspected and evaluated. Air Force and Civil (GovGuam) operations were also brought into the study in the interest of exploring possible integrated concepts. It was found that SW procedures practiced by the PWC Guam conform well with NAVFAC instructions and EPA guidelines. Opportunities for resource recovery, particularly of aluminum and boxboard, should be exploited, however. The collection and landfill disposal operations can be continued for up to 15 years before changes need to be made. Benefit/cost analyses of alternative disposal approaches were performed. The concept of burning all of the Navy's SW to steam-drive the Naval station's air conditioning plant emerged as a possibility. Another cost beneficial approach, but one involving the other jurisdictions, would be to erect a turbo-electric (2.5-MW) facility that would fire all of the SW generated on Guam. The mass-fired plant would be owned by GovGuam and preferably operated by a full-service contractor. Since both the GovGuam and Air Force landfills have very limited additional usage and acceptable new sites are quite limited, the concept would solve the serious SW disposal problems now faced by both of those entities
Solid Waste Resource Alternatives, U.S. Facility, Subic Bay, Philippines by S. A Vigil( Book )

2 editions published between 1984 and 1985 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Navy Public Works Center, Subic Bay, Republic of the Philippines (PWC Subic Bay) is responsible for the collection and disposal of almost 300,000 yd of solid waste annually. A portion of this solid waste is manually sorted and recycled, resulting in gross revenues of over $200,000 IN FY82. The present manual sorting and recycling system is considered by PWC Subic Bay to be inadequate in terms of Sanitation, safety, and recyclable materials recovery. Therefore, PWC Subic Bay requested that the Naval Civil Engineering Laboratory study the system and recommend improvements. The specific purpose of this study was to evaluate the existing solid waste management and resource recovery system and identify methods which will meet the following objectives: (1) Enhance the physical security of the base by making the residual landfilled material unattractive to scavengers; (2) Safeguard the rights of the contract employees while improving their safety, working conditions, and productivity; (3) Improve the habitability and cleanliness of the base in the vicinity of the recycling facility; and (4) Increase net revenues to PWC Subic Bay by increasing the proportion of material recycled, improving the quality of recovered materials, and extracting the energy available in the residuals destined for disposal. A semi-mechanized recycling facility with baling or a heat recovery incinerator was recommended
