  • Bioremediation with compost of a diesel contaminated soil: Monitoring by dehydrogenase activity and basal respiration

    The effect of compost on hydrocarbon degradation was determined during a 120-d incubation period. An evaluation of soil basal respiration and dehydrogenase activity as a monitoring instrument for the bioremediation process of soil contaminated with commercial diesel-oil was carried out. Six soil samples were used: S (control, uncontaminated soil), CS (contaminated soil), CSS (contaminated and ...

  • Case study – bio-diesel application

    More than a decade of research and development by a network of soybean farmers, backed by an environmentally responsible food processor, a local soybean association and the formation of a farmer (majority) owned firm, resulted in the construction of a biodiesel facility in the central United States. Using soybean oil as its primary feedstock, the facility planned to produce 40 million gallons of ...

  • On the Ground with Diesel Corrosion - Case Study

    When the EPA revealed the results of its study in July on the increasing presence of substantial corrosion in diesel fuel tanks, it proved that the problem is much larger than anyone anticipated. The facts are staggering: 83%of the diesel tank systems exhibited moderate-to-severe corrosion. 75%of the owner/operators of those diesel tanks had no idea it was ...

  • Diesel and Gasoline Remediation in Groundwater and Soil at a DoD Site

    Site Summary Three above ground storage tanks (containing gasoline and diesel) and associated piping were removed from a DoD site in January 1990. Concentrations of TPHd and TPHg were found in soil samples collected around the former ASTs at concentrations of 140 mg/kg and 9,400 mg/kg, respectively.  Groundwater contamination was also detected with TPHd concentrations reaching 21,000 ug/L ...

  • Bioremediation of Kerosene and Diesel Fuel in soil case study

    The United States has a large hazardous waste problem that is threatening both human health and the environment. Current analysis of the nearly 1,200 National Priority List (NPL) sites reveals that about 80% of the sites are contaminated with organic compounds. Clean-up of hazardous waste sites, as a national priority has accelerated the development of bioremediation technologies. Environmental ...

  • Dust monitoring

    Generally, two different approaches are used to measure the amount of dust deposited on a surface; Determination of the soiling of a surface, by a change in its properties; Determination of the quantity of dust deposited, by weight. WHAT IS DUST? Dust is a generic term used to describe fine particles that are suspended in the atmosphere. Dust comes from a wide variety of sources, including soil, ...

  • Soot level – a diesel engine lube oil condemning limit

    While there is widespread disagreement on used-diesel oil condemning limits, it is well known that excessive soot in the lube oil causes abnormal valve and injection-train wear.  It can also increase exhaust emissions and clog filters.  Typically, the suggested limit for soot is in the neighborhood of 3% but can go much higher.  With the new ASTM Method D7686, truck, bus, ...

  • Monitoring Hydrocarbons in Bilge Water

    The Situation Various processes onboard ships, such as machinery wash-down, maintenance, and leakage generate oily wastewater. This contaminated water flow collects in the bilge of the ship. Marine diesel, lubricating oils, grease, as well as garbage may be present in bilge water. The bilge water is discharged overboard, with oil and grease concentrations in the discharged water limited ...

  • Plant area monitoring at Krško

    Post-Fukushima upgrades at Krško in Slovenia (www.nek.si) are being implemented in accordance with the requirements of the national regulator and the plant owners. The first phase, including a passive containment vent filtering system and hydrogen recombiners, a new emergency diesel generator, and a protected store of mobile emergency equipment, is already completed. The next phase in ...

  • Monitoring Oil in Cooling Water

    The Situation A municipal power plant in the southern United States operates more than 10 stationary power plant engines capable of producing 52 megawatts of electric power. The plant is part of a larger statewide power grid system. Within the grid, the municipality brokers the purchase or sale of power hourly, based on the needs of municipality and the market rate for power on the grid ...

  • Fault diagnosis of a diesel engine by using the analysis of instantaneous angular speed with a flexible model

    Engine shaft instantaneous angular speed (IAS) can be used to diagnose combustion related faults and other faults affecting the output of engines, especially for small-scale diesel generators. Unfortunately, it is difficult to apply this technology to monitoring the operational condition of a marine propulsion diesel engine due to its complex shafting systems and multiple factors affecting the ...
