  • How To Handle Chemical Spills & Cleanups

    FAST-ACT is designed for liquid and vapor chemical releases, but the chemicals it attacks does not need to be limited to what we traditionally think of as a chemical spill. Toxic and noxious chemicals can come from a variety of sources such as waste water, decomposition, household chemicals, and animals. Since FAST-ACT can be applied to liquid spill or vapor release enabling Emergency Responders ...

  • FAST-ACT Chemical hazard containment and neutralization system - Technical Report

    ABSTRACT FAST-ACT is a proprietary formulation of non-toxic high-performance specialty materials effective at neutralizing a wide range of toxic chemicals with the added capability to destroy chemical warfare agents. The FAST-ACT formulation is non-flammable, non-corrosive, and significantly reduces both liquid and vapor hazards. Since the dry powder neutralizes threats upon contact, ...

  • Application of Fenton oxidation to reduce the toxicity of mixed parabens

    The aims of the present work were to assess the application of a chemical process to degrade a mixture of parabens and determine the influence of a natural river water matrix on toxicity. Model effluents containing either a single compound, namely methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, benzylparaben or p-hydroxybenzoic acid, or to mimic realistic conditions a mixture of the ...

  • Global Site Decommissioning - Case Study

    Challenge: A global oil and gas company required final decommissioning at a former terminal and blending facility that had been idle for almost a decade. The 2.5 acre site, located in South Africa, required the removal of all above and below ground structures, underground utilities, process equipment, buildings, concrete slabs and foundations. The objective of ...

  • Sensitivity of six subantarctic marine invertebrates to common metal contaminants

    A long history of anthropogenic activities in the relatively pristine subantarctic has resulted in areas of accumulated waste and contaminants. Sensitivities to metals of subantarctic and Antarctic species may contrast with related species from temperate and tropical areas, due to the unique characteristics of polar biota. In addition, response to contaminants may be delayed and hence longer ...

  • On the ionization of air for removal of noxious effluvia” (Air ionization of indoor environments for control of volatile and particulate contaminants with nonthermal plasmas generated by dielectric-barrier discharge)

    Abstract Recent developments in the application of controllable air ionization processes that apply dielectric-barrier discharge devices to generate nonthermal plasmas have led to applications for chemical and biological decontamination in indoor air environments. These include significant reductions in airborne microbials, neutralization of odors, and reductions of specific volatile ...

  • Quantification of exposure to fecal contamination in open drains in four neighborhoods in Accra, Ghana

    In low-income countries, rapid urbanization adds pressure to already stressed water and sanitation systems that are critical to the health of communities. Drainage networks, designed for stormwater but commonly used for disposing of waste, are rarely covered completely, allowing residents to easily come into contact with their contents. This study used spatial mapping, documentation of ...

  • Chemical Cleaning and Decontamination of Refinery and Petrochemical Distillation Equipment

    1. Abstract In refineries and petrochemical plants the equipment needs to be checked during planned shutdown. This can require several weeks of downtime, if columns, vessels, heatexchangers and tanks have to be drained to remove deposits and armful gases such as hydrogen sulfide, benzene and other volatile hydrocarbons. Formation of iron sulfide is very common in oil refineries and ethylene ...
