At the U.S. EPA's Oil and Hazardous Materials Simulated Environmental Test Tank (OHMSETT) in Leonardo, New Jersey, from September 1975 through November 1975, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) and the U.S. Coast Guard evaluated selected oil-spill control equipment for use on spills of floatable hazardous materials (HM). The HM used during the tests were octanol, dioctyl phthalate and naphtha. The major parameters indicating performance were recovery rates, recovery efficiency and throughput efficiency. It was concluded that equipment performance was directly relatable to the physical properties of the HM, and, in this respect, showed no difference from previous oil-recovery tests. The conduct of the project is described; and the results, conclusions and recommendations are presented. A 16-mm color sound narrative motion picture entitled 'Performance Testing of Spill Control Devices on Floatable Hazardous Materials' was produced to document the results of this project.
