Thirteen spill response devices, concepts, or prototypes, developed under previous contracts to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for detection, containment, and cleanup of chemicals, were evaluated by potential users and manufacturers. The main goal of the project was to inform potential users and manufacturers of the existence and technical functions of each concept, device, or prototype; its stage of development; and its intended uses. The evaluations in the report were offered by potential users and manufacturers after they examined the devices or the available technical literature on the devices. The 13 devices included: the capture and containment bag; the cholinesterase antagonist monitors (CAM-1 and CAM-4); the emergency collection system; foamed concrete; the insoluble sinkers detectors; the hazardous materials identification kit (HMIDK); the lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) test method; the leak plugger; the oxidation/reduction field test kit; the particle size analyzer; the sorbent oil recovery system; vapor control coolants; and vapor control foams. The activities used to inform potential users and manufacturers about the devices included presentations, mailings, exhibits at conferences, and publications in trade magazines. In addition, value engineering analyses were performed for two prototypes. These activities resulted in many valuable comments from potential users and manufacturers which may be beneficial to future development programs for these and similar devices. The study generated a high degree of interest in most of the prototypes.
