  • Controlling odors from creosote utilizing foam-based technology

    From approximately 1910 until the mid-1950s, a creosote plant operated on a 50 acre site in Manville, New Jersey. During its operation, the wood treatment facility treated railroad ties with creosote and discharged the excess creosote via canals to two waste lagoons located on the site. After treatment, wood was stored in areas of the site where excess creosote dripped onto surface soils and ...

  • What Are Solar Buildings Technologies?

    Solar buildings technologies use the non-polluting power of the sun to help heat, cool, and power our buildings. Because buildings now use one-third of the energy currently consumed in this country, the potential markets for using solar buildings technologies in place of conventional ones is substantial. Whether you're a home owner, architect, builder, business owner, or industry or utility ...

  • Carbon Fiber Emission Control Strategies

    Problem Carbon fiber (fibre) and graphite reinforced polymers are materials that have, and will continue to revolutionize the products we use everyday by making them stronger, lighter and more durable. However, the manufacturing process can have serious environmental ramifications and immediate danger to human health if careful consideration is not given to emission control at the ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Nonhalogenated VOCs

    Soil vapor extraction (SVE), thermal desorption, and incineration are the presumptive remedies for Superfund sites with nonhalogenated VOC-contaminated soil. Because a presumptive remedy is a technology that EPA believes, based upon its past experience, generally will be the most appropriate remedy for a specified type of site, the presumptive remedy approach will accelerate site-specific ...
