  • Assessment, Field Testing, and Conceptual Design for Managing Dense Non-Aqueous Phase Liquids (DNAPLs) at a Superfund Site

    AbstractDense non-aqueous phase liquids (DNAPL) greatly complicate groundwater remediation because the heavy DNAPL will sink and follow topographic lows within an aquifer system, and because DNAPL is difficult to extract using conventional pumping methods. These problems are now ...


  • Proficiency test of non-target screening with gas chromatography mass spectrometry to confirm a detected contamination of raw and drinking water

    Much of the water supply industry has implemented online monitoring and warning systems for chemical or biological contaminations. When a contamination is detected, further investigations are necessary to confirm or to cancel the initial alarm. The proficiency of a non-target screening approach with solid phase extraction and GCMS in full-scan mode was examined. A selection of pesticides and ...

  • Plasma Arc Waste Destruction System (PAWDS) - A novel approach to waste elimination aboard ships

    The Plasma Arc Waste Destruction System (PAWDS) uses plasma energy, with temperatures over 5,000 oC, to rapidly and efficiently destroy combustible waste aboard ships. PAWDS has proven itself to be a viable alternative to traditional incinerators. In September 2003, Carnival Cruise Lines were the first to install a PAWDS aboard their 2,056 passenger (plus 1,000 crew members) capacity, M/S ...

  • Treatment of ship sludge oil using a plasma arc waste Destruction system (PAWDS)

    The Plasma Arc Waste Destruction system (PAWDS) uses a plasma torch to quickly gasify solid  waste on board ships. Developed under the support of the US Navy, this compact one deck system has been in commercial operation on board a cruise ship for more than three years. With the support of Carnival Cruise Lines and the National Research Council of Canada, the PAWDS was recently modified in ...

  • Automobile Shredder Residue (ASR) destruction in a plasma gasification reactor

    Test results on Automobile Shredder Residue (ASR), or car fluff, demonstrated destruction efficiency and safe conversion to synthesis gas and a glass residue, in a plasma gasification system. The synthesis gas consists primarily of hydrogen and carbon monoxide in the range between 20 and 22 vol-% respectively, or 45 and 55 vol-% dry basis, when corrected for nitrogen. In dry reforming operation, ...
