Experimental studies concerning the drying of voloxidizer off-gases

Description: The results of an experimental program conducted to aid in the design of a tritium retention system to remove tritiated water from voloxidizer off-gases are presented. The retention system is expected to be a fixed-bed adsorption unit using a commercially available desiccant, such as molecular sieves, to dry the off-gases. The presence of iodine in the off-gas stream somewhat complicates the drying process since some iodine will be retained in the drying bed along with the tritiated water. The present work represents a follow-up to a study in which a small-scale (2-in.-diam by 30-in.-long) packed column of Linde Molecular Sieves (LMS) type 3A was repeatedly loaded and regenerated using a non-radioactive simulated voloxidizer off-gas containing water and iodine vapor. Both water and iodine loadings were measured and the regeneration characteristics of the bed were observed. The following studies were carried out: (1) testing of other desiccants showed LMS type 3A to be superior because of its high water loading and low iodine retention; (2) development of a column-mounted moisture detector; (3) adsorption isotherms; (4) iodine analysis using a commercial oxidant monitor; (5) tests on cartridge-type beds - a series of tests were conducted using three small drying beds connected in series. One further finding of this study was the importance of the clay binder (used in pelletized molecular sieves) in obtaining satisfactory or acceptably low iodine retention.

Analysis of potential used oil recovery from individuals. Final report

Description: To assist the Department of Energy in its investigation of methods for recycling used motor oil, Market Facts conducted a telephone survey of individuals who change their own motor oil. The study examined the amount of oil used, oil change practices, oil disposal methods, and perceptions and attitudes toward used motor oil disposal and oil recycling. The results of this survey are presented in this report. The findings of this study confirm the generally held view that about half the vehicle households in the United States now do their own oil changes and additions. These do-it-yourselfers (DIY) households account for almost two-thirds of the motor oil consumed by all US households and produce about one-third of one billion gallons of used motor oil annually. At least half of this used motor oil, more than 170 million gallons, is returned to the environment in a form that pollutes the ground and endangers the water supply. Measures such as requiring information about proper disposal and the need for recycling used oil to be printed on motor oil containers have been taken in many states. The need for reminder advertising and reinforcement education and information and practical measures to ease the burden of compliance is suggested. These results suggest that careful consideration be given to the logistics of these measures. The most appealing of the measures would appear to be making a special container available to DIY oil changers. Employing civic groups as collection agents would also seem to be attractive.

Bodcau in situ combustion project. Fourth annual report, September 1, 1979-February 28, 1981

Description: Objective is to demonstrate the technical efficiency and economics of a commercial scale in-situ combustion project in a shallow heavy oil reservoir. Five elongated inverted nine-spot patterns were developed for this demonstration on Cities Service Company's Bodcau Fee B lease in the Bellevue Field, Bossier Parish, Louisiana. The five patterns comprising the demonstration project enclose 19 productive acres and consist of thirty-eight producing, five injection and five observation wells. This report briefly reviews the history of the project with emphasis on operations from September 1979 through February 1981. Sections on the air system explosion in February 1980 and the results from an evaluation well drilling program in pattern 15 are highlights.

Ceramic phases for immobilization of /sup 129/I. [Sodalite and boracite]

Description: Materials for ultimate disposal of /sup 129/I have been studied. At present, iodide-sodalite, though not ideal, appears to be the best material for /sup 129/I immobilization from the aspects of ease of preparation, thermal stability, cost of materials, and leach resistance. Good consolidation of the material was achieved by sintering in air at 1000 to 1200/sup 0/C, but the iodine content was significantly below stoichiometric expectations. Hot aqueous media preferentially removed iodine, apparently by OH/sup -/ substitution in near-neutral solutions, and I reversible reaction Cl/sup -/ exchange occurred in brine. Alternation of the sodalite also took place. Soxhlet leach rates were about 5 x 10/sup -4/ g/cm/sup 2/-day by total weight loss, but physical weathering contributed significantly to this value. Moderate doses of radiation had no observable deleterious structural effects. Iodoboracites seemingly cannot be prepared by ceramic or nonhydrothermal wet chemical techniques. Fe-iodoboracite has inferior thermal stability to iodide-sodalite and was completely altered to hematite after treatment at 200/sup 0/C in deionized water. Silver zeolites retained some iodine in the form of crystalline ..cap alpha..-AgI at temperatures up to 1300/sup 0/C even though heating above approx. 700/sup 0/C altered the alumino-silicate framework. However, some of the iodine appeared to be present as soluble iodine, even in heated materials. Treatment at 200/sup 0/C in deionized water or 2M NaCl significantly decreased the crystallinity of the aluminosilicate framework and the ..cap alpha..-AgI reflections in the x-ray patterns were enhanced. Mild ..gamma.. irradiations (approx. 50 MR) affected the x-ray diffraction patterns of some of the zeolites. Various lead oxyhalides had very poor thermal stability.

Development of instrumental methods of analysis of sulfur compounds in coal process streams. Quarterly technical progress report, April-June 1981

Description: This report covers the seventh quarter of a two-year contract renewal period. Task 1: extension and refinement of thermodynamic survey and construction of pourbaix diagrams. Work has been completed on schedule and has previously been reported in FE-10482-14 (1981). Task 2: voltammetric methods development. The hydrososulfide moiety HS/sup -/ is not electroreducible at the dropping mercury electrode. A mixture of HS/sup -/ and of the polysulfide anions S/sub 5//sup -2/, S/sub 4//sup -2/, S/sub 3//sup -2/ yielded a complex polarogram which included a narrow limiting current domain. That current provided a linear measure of the quantity (S/sub s//sup -2/) = (S/sub 5//sup -2/) + (S/sub 4//sup -2/) +(S/sub 3//sup -2/). Tack 3. enthalpimetric methods development. Assignments of heats of precipitation and solubility products of Tl/sub 2/S, Tl/sub 2/S/sub 2/, Tl/sub 2/S/sub 3/, Tl/sub 2/S/sub 4/, and Tl/sub 2/S/sub 5/ have been compiled from the literature. The molar sum of sulfide and polysulfides has been determined by precipitation titration to a thermometric endpoint with standard thallous nitrate. Task 4. application and technology transfer to coal conversion plants. A polarographic method for determining polysulfides has been validated in a coal liquefaction process stream. The relevant polarographic reduction wave is specific for moieties of the type S/sub x//sup -2/. The hydrosulfide ion HS/sup -/ did not interfere. No cathodic sulfide waves were seen in an H-Coal sour water sample which contained HS/sup -/ but no polysulfides.

Health and environmental effects of oil and gas technologies: research needs

Description: This report discusses health and environmental issues associated with oil and gas technologies as they are currently perceived - both those that exist and those that are expected to emerge over the next two decades. The various sections of this report contain discussions of specific problem areas and relevant new research activities which should be pursued. This is not an exhaustive investigation of all problem areas, but the report explores a wide range of issues to provide a comprehensive picture of existing uncertainties, trends, and other factors that should serve as the focus of future research. The problem areas of major concern include: effects of drilling fluids, offshore accidents, refineries and worker health, and biota and petroleum spills, indoor air pollution, information transfer, and unconventional resources. These are highlighted in the Executive Summary because they pose serious threats to human health and the environment, and because of the sparcity of accumulated knowledge related to their definition. Separate abstracts have been prepared for selected sections of this report for inclusion in the Energy Data Base. (DMC)
