||Increasing reliance on municipal combustion (MWC) for disposal of solid waste has focused concern on management of MWC residues. A key consideration in resolving these issues is the release of contaminants from MWC residues to the environment and the effectiveness of treatment and utilization techniques to minimize contaminant release. Leaching has been identified as the most important contaminant release mechanism from MWC residues to the environment. To address these issues and others, USEPA initiated the Municipal (Waste) Innovative Technology Evaluation Program (MITE). Technology evaluation under the program includes extensive testing of the physical, chemical and leaching properties of untreated and treated MWC residues. The paper presents an overview of significant results from the chemical and leaching tests carried out under the program for five solidification/stabilization processes.
