Field Scale Solidification/Stabilization of Hazardous Wastes

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Environmental Engineering


The selection of appropriate remedial action measures only takes place after a full evaluation of all feasible alternatives. An alternative to off site disposal is solidification/stabilization and on site disposal of hazardous wastes. Four basic scenarios are developed for application of solidification/stabilization technology to remedial action sites: in drum, in situ, plant mixing, and area mixing. Additional modifications of the basic scenarios are also presented. The four scenarios are based on a nationwide survey of existing field scale solidification/stabilization practices. Information is presented on site specific applications, equipment requirements, cost factors, effectiveness, and safety considerations. (Author abstract. )
