Abstract : USATHAMA and PEI personnel participated in meetings and facility tours at eight Army depots between April 5 and July 19, 1989. The purpose of these visits was to acquire comparable information on waste minimization at the depots. Information was collected both on tasks to be conducted in the near future under the current Task Order and potential research projects that USATHAMA may select for long-term effort. Projects that could be funded under PEI's current scope of work include those related to VOC emissions, abrasive blasting (including plastic media blasting), chemical paint strippers, degreasing, electroplating and generation of metals-contaminated sludges. Many of the projects are related, and information from one study could be transferred to the depot of interest in another related study. From these projects, USATHAMA and PEI have selected three tentative projects that will be implemented and one alternative project that may be implemented during the remainder of Task Order No. 0004. These projects are listed below: Conduct tests of paint application systems. Extend lives of process bath (e.g., NaOH) at Letterkenny. Implement chromium recovery units for rinse water at Corpus Christi. An alternative project is to evaluate the use of zirconia alumina as a blast media at Tobyhanna.
