Effects of operational factors on the formation of toxic organic micropollutants in EAF steelmaking final report by R Fisher( Book )

5 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A coordinated multipartner, multinational research project, involving Corus UK Limited, BFI, ISQ and CSM, was carried out on the electric arc furnace steel making process to investigate: (i) operational factors that influence the formation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins and dibenzofurants (PCDD/Fs) in EAF steelmaking; (ii) conditions that promote and/or prevent the formation of PCBs and PCDD/Fs in the EAF via the de novo synthesis mechanism; (iii) the formation of organic micropollutants in a pre-heating shaft; (iv) measures for preventing the emission of organic micropollutants from shaft pre-heaters by use of internal post -combustion; (v) the optimum design for pre-heating systems on EAFs to meet environmental and economic demands; (vi) the reversible adsorption of organic micropollutants on technical plastics as a cost-effective means of removing such substances from EAF waste gases. From plant and laboratory studies it appeared that PCDD/Fs and PCBs were mainly formed in sections of the waste gas system where the temperature exceeded 500 °C, with little evidence of de novo synthesis of PCDD/Fs or PCBs in sections of the extraction system where temperatures more conducive to this formation mechanism were found. Experiments on a pilot scale shaft pre-heating system showed that only about 15 % of oil in the charge was emitted as volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The major part of the VOC emission occurred at temperatures <600 °C, which is too low for in-shaft combustion of VOCs to occur. A conceptual design was developed of a shaft pre-heater incorporating the internal post-combustion of VOCs

Influence of sinter mix materials on the environmental impact of high productivity iron ore sintering : final report( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Studies were carried out on the iron sintering process to investigate: the effects of sinter mix composition on the emissions of toxic organic compounds such as polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), polychlorinated dibenzo-p-dioxins (PCDDs), polychlorinated dibenzofurans (PCDFs), polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), heavy metals and oxides of nitrogen (NOx.); conditions whereby revert materials can continue to be recycled through the sinter plant; and, the use of sinter mix additives and selective catalytic reduction with ammonia for the minimisation of NOx emissions. The work was carried out by a coordinated programme of work involving Corus UK Limited, BFI, Aceralia and CENIM. Corus UK Ltd and BFI studied the influence of sinter mix composition on emissions of PAHs, PCBs and PCDD/Fs by means of sinter pot experiments and measurements on production scale sinter plants. Aceralia and CENIM investigated the influence of revert materials on the formation of NOx and the emissions of heavy metals and alkali chlorides. Aceralia, CENIM, INCAR and the Instituto de Catalasis y Petroleoquimica (ICP) examined methods for the minimisation of NOx emissions by the use of sinter mix additives and selective catalytic reduction. Overall the work highlighted the important role of alkali chlorides in the formation of organochlorine compounds and emissions of fine particulates and heavy metals in the sintering process. A novel catalyst was developed for the selective catalytic reduction of NOx at temperatures down to 210°C, but the use of sinter mix additives did not significantly reduce the formation of NOx
Field Evaluation of the Explosive Deposition of Cesium on Concrete Surfaces Following the Detonation of a Mock Radiological Dispersal Device (RDD)( )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory conducted a field study to evaluate the deposition of an explosively dispersed radionuclide surrogate (CsCl) on grime and non-grime containing urban surfaces. An additional objective of this study was to evaluate several laboratory surface contamination techniques for the preparation of mock urban surfaces in order to determine the method that most closely mimics surface contamination following an RDD event. The field study was conducted at the LLNL Site 300 Contained Firing Facility (CFF). For our study, we detonated a mock RDD made using C4 and non-radioactive CsCl. Lab prepared concrete samples (3.8 cm x 7.6 cm cylinders) were made using 4 different conditioning regimes to mimic a range of conditions that may be encountered during an RDD event. This sample set included dry, wet, carbonated and non-carbonated cores with and without the application of urban grime. In addition, concreted samples (13 cm x 13 cm x 5 cm) removed from an urban surface were placed inside the CFF chamber. The samples were placed inside the firing chamber at 3 different distances from the mock RDD device. Following the detonation of the mock RDD, the samples were removed from the firing chamber and selected cores were characterized by laser ablation and scanning electron microscopy. Preliminary results suggest that Cs migrates into the concrete samples and the presence of a grime layer does not appear to impede this migration

Emergency sewage procedures during crisis relocation by R Fisher( Book )

3 editions published between 1978 and 1979 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This work was conducted in support of Crisis Relocation Planning(CRP), a comprehensive effort by the Defense Civil Preparedness Agency to prepare contingency plans for the relocation of population from high-risk areas to protect them from the combined blast and radiation effects of nuclear weapons. This program considered one of the most important functions--sewage treatment--in the host areas. With the possible exception of an adequate safe water system, no other municipal function is more critical for public health, especially during emergency situations in host areas where the population may increase as much as five fold. This report is presented in threee parts. Part I, the technical report, provides background material, references, and the rationale behind the development of the manual, which is Part II. Also discussed is the field testing phase including observations and conclusions obtained from this testing. This part of the report may be of interest to Defense Civil Preparedness Agency and state Civil Defense personnel as well as to sewage plant operators

Assessments of a cod farming operation in Newfoundland by R Fisher( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Live Atlantic cod ranging in length from 30-60 cm were collected from cod traps operated by commercial fishermen. These fish were purchased at the trap site, transferred to tanks on collector boats and transported to a marine farm for maintenance and grow-out. Mortalities were assessed during transportation and grow-out and possible causes were identified. The tagging and measuring of individual fish provided an assessment of growth during the grow-out period. This, as well as data on feed types, amounts and schedules, general observations on farming logistics, and suggestions for improvement are included
