Ross Environmental Research Ltd. Ottawa, ON February 28, Chitin is a natural polymer extracted mostly from shrimp or crab shells and is the Earth’s second most abundant polysaccharide. After a simple deacetylation procedure, chitin is converted into chitosan that consists in a polysaccharide structure of deacetylated-β-glucosamine. Chitosan has been largely employed in wastewater treatment the removal of colloids through coagulation-flocculation Cited by: 2.

    Polaris is a Finnish icebreaker. Built in by Arctech Helsinki Shipyard, she is the most powerful icebreaker ever to fly the Finnish flag and the first icebreaker in the world to feature environmentally friendly dual-fuel engines capable of using both low-sulfur marine diesel oil (LSMDO) and liquefied natural gas (LNG). Polaris was initially ordered by the Finnish Transport Agency, but the Namesake: Polaris. Double acting ship is a type of icebreaking ship designed to run ahead in open water and thin ice, but turn around and proceed astern (backwards) in heavy ice conditions. In this way, the ship can operate independently in severe ice conditions without icebreaker assistance but retain better open water performance than traditional icebreaking vessels.

    The routes to cleaning waste hydrocarbons and oil spills can be catalogued into primary, secondary and tertiary treatments based on the process stage [].The related technologies can be divided into four categories: (1) the mechanical methods physically remove the waste hydrocarbons and oil spills with the aid of equipment such as booms, skimmers and vacuum cateringwhidbey.com by: 1.

Performance tests of four selected oil spill skimmers by Robert W Urban Download PDF EPUB FB2

Performance tests of four selected oil spill skimmers were conducted at the EPA's test tank at Leonardo, N.J. The parameters measured to indicate performance were: throughput efficiency, the percentage of the oil encountered which is collected; recovery efficiency, the per cent of oil in the oil.

A series of performance tests were conducted at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's OHMSETT test facility with four selected oil spill pickup devices (skimmers). Each of the four skimmers was tested for two weeks with both high and low viscosity oils.

Figure 4 depicts a typology of oil spill metrics that shows both how oil spill management progresses in time (from left to right) and how metrics can be characterized as a resource, process, or endpoint.

Beach. Publisher Summary. Oil is a wide variety of natural substances of plant, animal, or mineral origin, as well as a range of synthetic compounds. There are different kinds of oil like gasoline which is used in automobiles, diesel fuels used in trucks, trains, and buses, a light crude oil, a heavy crude oil, an intermediate fuel oil (IFO) used in ships and bunker fuel is used in heating plants.

Ohmsett is the only place in the world where full scale oil spill response equipment testing, research, and training with oil can be conducted in a marine environment under controlled conditions.

The Ohmsett facility is located on Sandy. While major oil spills are rare, oil slicks can have disastrous environmental and economic consequences. This book summarizes research on the use of chemical dispersants: their effectiveness and limitations and the results of using them in different spill situations.

Several types of commercial activities are increasing in the Arctic, leading to the prospect of rapid growth in shipping along several routes. evaluate four oleophilic skimmers as potential alternatives to the skimmers currently used in Alaska’s Prince William Sound (PWS) oil spill response plan.

The selected skimmer has undergone a number of modifications with improvements quantified over four additional tests series. This paper focuses on the most recent test of this skimmer. Nov 05,  · Performance tests of four selected oil spill skimmers.
