Potential for Accelerated Bioremediation and Restoration of Oil-Impacted Marshes through the Selection of Superior Oil-Tolerant Vegetation

Description: Report describing a study of the genotypes two plants (Spartina Patens and Spartina Alterniflora) that are tolerant to oil spills that have occurred in the coastal marshes of Louisiana. The research was to determine if these two plants could utilized for restoration and bioremediation of areas effected by oil spills. A plants tolerance to oil is determined by three factors: growth response and plant production, superior vegetative regrowth in soil effected by oil, and superior oil degradation potential.

Operating Details of Gas Producers

Description: From Introduction: "During the early years of these plants little success was anticipated from the use of bituminous coals and lignites, but in 1904 and 1905 it was fully demonstrated at Government testing station at St. Louis that these fuels could be utilized to excellent advantage. However, although many producer-gas plants in daily operation are still skeptical regarding the successful commercial use of these fuels."

A Study of Large Size Saline Water Conversion Plants

Description: From Introduction: "The principal objective of this study is to digest the experience accumulated in the operation of the demonstration plants, and from this information, to arrive at the cost of fresh water when produced on a large scale. It is important to recognize that the costs, as calculated in this report, are based upon the state of development of the processes as exemplified and proven in the demonstration plants. The field is new, and the rate of development is such that further cost reductions may be expected."
