Contents Notes
"The primary goal of this project was to inform potential users and manufacturers of the existence, stage of development, mode of operation, and intended use of 13 spill response devices, concepts, or prototypes. These 13 technologies were developed under previous contracts to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for detection, containment, and cleanup of hazardous chemicals. The 13 technologies were: two models of a cholinesterase antagonist monitor for pesticides (CAM-1 and CAM-4); a hazardous materials identification kit (HMIDK); two insoluble sinkers detectors; a lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) test method for chlorocarbons; an oxidation/reduction field test kit; a particle size analyzer for oil/water mixtures; a foamed concrete dike system; a leak plugger system; vapor control coolants; vapor control foams; a capture and containment bag; an emergency collection system; and a sorbent oil recovery system. Potential users and manufacturers were informed about the devices by presentations, mailings, exhibits at conferences, and publications in trade magazines. In addition, value engineering analyses were performed on two prototypes. After examining either the device or the available technical literature on the devices, potential users or manufacturers were Invited to offer comments and suggestions on the item. These responses were then analyzed to assess the potential for practical application for each technology. The study generated a high level of interest for several of the prototypes. Analysis of the responses Indicated that five of the prototypes were ready for development and four others could be commercialized if certain Improvements were made."
