Residual fuel oil
EPA Glossary of Climate Change Terms
The heavier oils that remain after the distillate fuel oils and lighter hydrocarbons are distilled away in refinery operations and that conform to ASTM Specifications D396 and D975.
Saturation level below which fluid drainage will not occur.

Residual chlorine: The available chlorine which remains in solution after the demand has been satisfied. Compare chlorine demand.
Residue: The dry solids remaining after the evaporation of a sample of water or sludge.
Health risk remaining after risk reduction actions are implemented.
See mean residence time ...
Residual Risk: The extent of health risk from air pollutants remaining after application of the Maximum Achievable Control Technology (MACT).
Residual Saturation: Saturation level below which fluid drainage will not occur.
residual 1) The remaining detectable or effective amount following the use, treatment or conversion of an initial level or quantity. 2) Amount of a pollutant remaining in the environment after a natural or technological process has taken place, e.
Residual: Amount of a pollutant remaining in the environment after a natural or technological process has taken place.
RF: Radio frequency; portion of electromagnetic spectrum.
chlorine remaining in water or wastewater at the end of specified contact period as combined or free chlorine.
Residual Risk: The quantity of health risk remaining after application of emission control.
residual disinfectant concentration ("C" in CT calcula-
tions). The concentration of disinfectant measured in mg/L
in a representative sample of water.
Residual disinfectants are reactive chemicals that will react with organic compounds found in saliva and stomach content, resulting in the formation of by-products.
Residuals generated by the treatment of sewage, petroleum refining waste and industrial chemical manufacturing wastewater with activated sludge. See Activated Sludge.
The animal and plant life of a particular region.

The residual concentration of a hazardous substance in a medium that is determined to be protective of human health and the environment under specified exposure conditions.

This residual soil is considered to be an "old" soil because it has been weathered as indicated by its horizons.
Residual reproductive value (RRV) The expected relative contribution of an individual to its population, by reproduction, for all stages of its life cycle subsequent to the present.
all gaseous hydrocarbons produced from wells, including wet gas and residual gas remaining after the extraction of condensate from wet gas, ...
At these high altitudes, the residual atmospheric gases sort into strata according to molecular mass.
Many water systems intentionally leave residual disinfection agents in the water after exiting the plant so it travels throughout the distribution system.
Disinfectant Time- The time it takes water to move from the point of disinfectant application (or the previous point of residual disinfectant measurement) to a point before or at the point where the residual disinfectant is measured.
Fly Ash: Non-combustible residual particles expelled by flue gas.
Fogging: Applying a pesticide by rapidly heating the liquid chemical so that it forms very fine droplets that resemble smoke or fog.
TDS: Total dissolved solids. A quantitative measure of the residual minerals dissolved in water that remain after evaporation of a solution. Usually expressed in milligrams per liter.
Ultimate disposal The process of returning residuals back to the environment in a form which will have the minimal or reduced negative environmental impacts.
Scientists involved in the study determined that this residual oil was declining at a rate of less than 4 percent annually.

Municipal Solid Waste
Garbage or refuse that is generated by households, commercial establishments, industrial offices or lunchrooms and sludges not regulated as a residual or hazardous waste. This does not include source-separated recyclables.
Energized: Machines and equipment are energized when they are connected to an energy source or they contain residual or stored energy.
LCC includes the cost of land acquisition, construction costs, energy costs, the cost to maintain, service and repair the building and its systems, costs of system replacement, financing costs, and residual or salvage value at the end of the ...
uses halogen gas and a recycling process that allows the filament to burn two to three times longer than a standard bulb, so it's quite a bit more efficient. But the high heat can pose a fire hazard. For even greater efficiency without the residual ...
Pollution Residual discharges of emissions to the air or water following application of emission control devices (EPA 1993b). See also environmental release and environmental intervention. ...
