Clean Gasoline Reforming with Superacid Catalysts Quarterly Report: July-September 1991

Description: The data showing the selectivity for production of 1-octene during dehydration of 2-octanol for ZrO[sub 2]-A and for ZrO[sub 2]-A/S are shown in Figure 17. The unsulfated sample exhibits high selectivity for 1-octene initially, but this declines to stabilize at about 40% at a reaction temperature of 320[degrees]C. However, the selectivity of the sulfated sample for 1-octene is consistently high at a reaction temperature of 220[degrees]C. The addition of sulfate ions has therefore increased the catalytic activity over that of the unsulfated zirconia, and at the same time produced a catalyst that is very selective for 1-octene only. Thus, this ZrO[sub 2]-A/S sample clearly does not exhibit superacid character since the dehydration product is the least stable one. Under similar conditions, dehydration using amorphous silica-alumina produces an equilibrium distribution of m-alkenes. Samples of ZrO[sub 2]-N were sulfated and these catalysts were even more active for 2-octanol dehydration than ZrO[sub 2]-A/S. However, the sulfated samples based upon ZrO[sub 2]-N produced nearly 100% conversion at the highest flow rate possible with the equipment [LHSV=12] and showed an equilibrium distribution of normal octenes rather than a selectivity for 1-octene. The samples of sulfated zirconias that are described here show a wide range of activity compared to unsulfated zirconias, but none of them exhibits the chain isomerization character expected of a superacute.

[Letter from Bill McCarter and Jack Davis to Russ Chapman, July 8, 1991]

Description: Photocopy of a letter from Bill McCarter and Jack Davis, co-directors of North Texas Institute for Educators on the Visual Arts, to Russ Chapman, Principal Lakewood Elementary. In regards Chapman being unable to attend either of the principal's sessions during the 1991 Summer Institute and that the institute was a real success due to the great measure of the contributions of the classroom teachers and art specialists, named as such, Marilyn Duncan, Laurie Bargsley and Pam Stephens. McCarter and Davis end the letter that each school teacher are to complete a plan for the DBAE implementation into their classrooms and that Chapman is to review the plan with his staff.

Innovative Coke Oven Gas Cleaning System for Retrofit Applications Quarterly Report: July-September 1991

Description: The EMP consists of a Compliance Monitoring Sampling Program and a Supplemental monitoring Sampling Program. The Compliance Monitoring Sampling Program will be conducted during a summer and a winter Baseline periods during the Pre-Construction/Construction phases of the Project and during a summer and a winter period following the successful Startup and Operational phase of the completed Project. compliance monitoring consist of conducting all the sampling and observation programs associated with existing required Federal, State, and Local Regulations, Permits and Orders. These include air, water, and waste monitoring and OSHA and NESHAP monitoring. The Supplemental Monitoring Program will also be conducted during a summer and a winter Baseline periods during the Pre-Construction/Construction phases of the Demonstration Facility and during a summer and a winter period following the successful startup and Operational phase of the completed Facility. Supplemental Monitoring includes sampling of 27 additional streams that are important to measure operational or environmental performance and impacts of the installation of the new COG treatment facilities.
