  • The use of microbial gene abundance in the development of fuel remediation guidelines in polar soils

    Terrestrial fuel spills in Antarctica commonly occur on ice‐free land around research stations as the result of human activities. Successful clean‐up of spills requires appropriate targets that enable contaminated sites to be signed off as no longer posing environmental risk following remediation. These targets are based on knowledge of the impacts of contaminants on the soil ecosystem and on ...

  • Improving fuel properties with fuel combine

    For improvement of fuel properties, it mixes by various components, which influence on the chemical and physical processes of fuel. These components improve to the same extent different operational properties and their indicators. With a choice of components composition, special attention should be paid to compatibility with applied oil for greasing. Fuel combine more often is compatible. In ...

  • Prediction and consequences of petroleum spills into the Nigerian aquatic environment in the year 2000

    The prediction and consequences of petroleum spills into Nigeria's aquatic environment in the year 2000 are presented. The forecasts are made from available petroleum spillage cases coupled with oral questionnaire and experimentally obtained data using moving average, t-distribution and simple exponential regression-correlation computational techniques. The simulated forecasts provide information ...

  • Centerbrook, Connecticut excavation; open-hole chemical oxidation case study

    A spill of 2500 gallons of fuel oil occurred at this Connecticut facility when a normally open valve was inadvertently closed during filling operations. The fuel seeped into earthen floor of the containment area and surrounded the saddle wall footings. Groundwater, present at a depth of 5 feet, stopped the downward migration of the fuel and became ...
