The overall objective of this study was to assess the alternatives to land disposal for treatment and disposal of potentially hazardous wastes generated by the inorganic chemicals industry. The aim of this project was to identify promising resource recovery and detoxification oriented treatment techniques which are applicable to these wastes. This study provides: (1) Information on feasible alternatives to current inadequate disposal methods; (2) Data needed by industry in its effort to deal with increasing volumes of hazardous solid waste; (3) Information on R&D needs for treatment processes showing high potential for improved waste management. The technical effort was accomplished in three main tasks: Information gathering, consultation and process selection; Information analysis, costing and reporting; Comparison studies.
