The report gives the status of EPA/IERL-RTP's Advanced Oil Processing Program. It projects the amounts and normal practice and patterns of the use of residual oil and the contaminants in residual oil, using emission standards as a yard stick to indicate where potential problems exist. It describes the development of environmental assessment and control technology, and discusses alternatives or choices of methods for the use of residual oil. Methods available or considered for the use of residual oil include: direct combustion, fluid-bed combustion, partial oxidation, chemically active fluid-bed (CAFB) combustion, direct hydrodesulfurization (HDS), and combinations of these technologies. It gives the history of IERL-RTP's program and the relationship of CAFB to other alternatives. It outlines the environmental assessment of residual oil use and control technology development. It gives program subobjectives, work tasks, and accomplishment plans, with funding levels. It discusses participating contractors and grantees, with their scope of work outlines and project descriptions. A section deals with the effort toward HDS, hydrodenitrogenation(HDN), and demetallization techniques for residual oils and like-derived fuels. It lists references and related EPA reports and staff papers.
