Abstract : An evaluation on using absorbent materials to control aviation fuel spills was conducted. A literature search was made to determine what materials would be applicable. Three materials were chosen. Evaluations were made on a laboratory scale, a slightly expanded scale on actual pavement, and a full-scale field demonstration under controlled conditions. It was determined that only one of the materials was feasible for the rapid containment of small (10 to 100 gallon) fuel spills. It is recommended that a full-scale evaluation of this product be conducted at an Air Force base. (Author)
