Response needs of teams charged with handling spills of hazardous volatile materials on land are considered by Battelle-Columbus. Items of hardware which could be adapted or developed to improve spill response capabilities are suggested. The report examines the available technology (and the lack thereof) being employed in current spill responses. An assessment of the phenomena that accompany spill volatilization is provided to determine and justify physical/chemical mechanisms that could potentially be used to control the hazards arising from volatility. As a result, approximately 60 items of hardware, which either exist or could be developed to improve hazardous volatile spill control responses, are discussed. A set of spill scenarios is developed to compare the new suggested technology items with current spill response procedures.
