  • Removal of nitrobenzene and volatile organic compounds using electron radiation

    Experimental results concerning removal of nitrobenzene and volatile organic compounds (VOCs), such as toluene, trichloroethylene and benzene with the use of low energy electron beam are presented. Lab scale apparatus for electron beam irradiation of water is briefly described. Total dose of /spl beta/ radiation was controlled by the time of water circulation (1-50 min.), accelerating voltage (V/sub a/=100-125 kV) and electron beam current (0.1-1 mA) for flow rate of 1 kg/min. The electron beam was generated in vacuum (p<10/sup -7/ Torr) produced by a system of diffusion-sorption-rotary pumps. Electrons were injected into the treated water through an electron beam permeable membrane made of boron nitride poly-crystalline ceramics with a thickness of 10 /spl mu/m. A low mass density (/spl sim/2 g/cm/sup 3/) of the ceramic material enables to obtain a high transmission of the electron beam even for a low accelerating voltage. Dependencies of the removed content of contaminants on the total dose of /spl beta/ radiation are presented. Despite using low energy electron beam, the results have indicated a significant removal of nitrobenzene and VOCs treated.

  • TRU waste systems models

    Transuranic waste is currently generated and/or stored at several sites throughout the Department of Energy complex in the US. The goal of the DOE National Transuranic Waste Program is to effect a safe, integrated, and economical disposal system for these wastes. Several alternatives are being considered. The selection process will involve tradeoffs of cost, risk, dose, and system efficiency. Simulation models are being used to aid in the analysis of the various options. In addition to modeling the material flow, the simulation tracks many specialized operational parameters related to the material processed or the elapsed time. These parameters track the radiological and chemical exposure dose to workers; the radiological, chemical, and hazardous risk associated with processing and storing drums; and the capital and operating costs of the facilities. The system being modeled has a timeline of approximately 30 years to fund, design, construct, operate, and decommission the needed facilities. The intent is to model this timeline and to include facility costs not directly related to processing. The tracking of these parameters is piggy backed onto the main simulation engine. Flexible simulation models, controlled by the user at run time, were developed. Two such models are presented.

  • Plasma destruction of battlefield chemical and biological warfare agents

    Summary form only given, as follows. Thermal plasmas are being evaluated for use in the destruction of deadly chemical and biological warfare agents. The technology approach consists of employing an electric arc to establish a plasma forming gas plume used to kill the harmful agents. The approach has been demonstrated on surrogate chemical and biological warfare agents. The harmful agents are rapidly destroyed, e.g., within a few seconds. Three different plasmas have been evaluated for their effectiveness to destroy harmful agents. The approaches used include nitrogen plasma, air plasma and a novel water plasma arcjet. The work incorporates an evaluation of the durability of the plasma arcjet technology for this application, e.g., cyclic life and steady-state durability. The follow-on phase of this project will result in a prototype system development suitable for field application. Anticipated benefits are the development of an effective system that will allow rapid and f-effective decontamination of surfaces that have been contaminated with chemical and biological warfare agents. No harmful byproducts will be produced. Additionally, the methods developed have application in the destruction of medical wastes, hazardous industrial wastes and in the destruction of hazardous materials associated with worldwide demilitarization activities.

  • Tunable compact electron generated plasma system for treatment of gaseous wastes

    Summary form only given. A tunable compact electron generated plasma reactor is being tested for the destruction of carbon tetrachloride, chloroform, and other organics in air streams, under widely varying concentrations and conditions. The experimental device utilizes a combination of electron-beam irradiation and variable DC electric fields to destroy hazardous gases. The electron beam controls the plasma density, while the DC fields are used to affect the background electron energy and/or the temperature of the gas in order to vary the reaction rates. The electron beam irradiation produces nonequilibrium chemical reactions at low temperatures that can be used to convert organics into benign byproducts. The low-temperature, nonequilibrium operation can provide a high-efficiency, high-throughput technique for destruction of gases in dilute concentrations (< 1000 ppm). Tests indicate that the concentrations of carbon tetrachloride can be easily decreased by 2-3 orders of magnitude in the plasma reactor without the formation of other hazardous material.

  • Removal of phenol in water by pulsed high voltage discharge

    Summary form only given. Recently, environmental pollution has been become a global problem. The development of advanced oxidation processes (AOP) for treatment of hazardous chemical contaminated wastes has grown rapidly. Of all these treatments, pulsed high voltage electrical discharge that produce non- thermal plasma, has been studied for degrading small organic species in wastewater. The discharge in water and aqueous solutions are efficient in the creation of a variety of effects as shock waves, ultraviolet radiation, high electric fields and, especially formation of chemically active species acting on biological cells and chemical compounds dissolved in water. Advantages of the pulsed discharge treatment are simultaneous removal of several pollutants, operation at ambient temperature and pressure, high destruction efficiency and no selection for contamination. But it has not been reported to compare the effect of different electrode type reactor and discharge energy on removal. In this study, we investigated phenol removal efficiency with pulsed discharge in water with various electrode type reactors (rod-rod, rod-plate and wire- cylinder) and discharge energy. The results show that, of three reactor types, the removal efficiency with wire-cylinder reactor was the highest, the removal efficiency with rod-rod and rod-plate reactor were almost the same. As for wire-cylinder reactor, removal efficiency does not strong depend on anode wire length and discharge voltage in our experimental conditions. However, it is improved by decreasing arc discharge by changing storage energy of the capacitance. In addition, effect of hydrogen peroxide on removal rate was also studied. When hydrogen peroxide 50 ppm or 200 ppm was added into the reactor, the phenol degradation rate becomes dramatically higher.

  • Green manufacturing process — surface pre-treatment with micro bubble cavitation

    In this paper, an innovative process, which utilizes micro-bubble cavitation in water for surface roughening pre-treatment prior to plating or laminating, is presented. No hazardous chemical is employed to comply with green process. In semiconductor industry, this surface damaging mechanism or surface roughening is a required process with chemicals. Massive amount of water were polluted and extra time was wasted on cleaning and rinsing the roughened surfaces in post-etching process. Cavitation is the bubble generation and collapsing process observed in common water. The most critical event is that shock wave is created during collapsing and attacks nearby object or surface to cause micro-scale erosion or etching. In real world, bubble cavitation, which damages the underwater hydraulic devices such as propeller, is the most unwanted phenomena but almost unavoidable. However, the proposed process is not only an ideal alternative without chemical release to satisfy green process requirements but also a cost-effective technology on TPT (throughput time) optimization and water consumption.

  • ¿Engineering Circuits and Systems at the Interface of Environment and Health

    As people go about their daily routine, they encounter myriad chemicals. Some of these chemicals, oxygen for instance, are absolutely essential for life. Others, environmental pollutants, are potentially harmful and a major factor that contributes to illness. The field of environmental health strives to understand not only what we encounter every day and over our lifespan, but also how our bodies respond to those exposures. The responses can be good (improving health), bad, or indifferent (by far the most common). Environmental health scientists have long studied the effects of environment on health using the tools we have available, steadily improving our ability to make connections and improve health as new technologies emerge. This commentary will lay out a number of challenges in two specific areas where the circuits and systems engineering community can help us address some of our biggest needs: the development of sensor systems for assessing exposures to environmental factors and the development of engineered tissue systems for assessing the biological response to the factors we are exposed to.
