This report presents an interim summary of current research dealing with the effects of chemical fixation on disposal of hazardous industrial waste residues and flue gas desulfurization (FGD) sludges. Present research involves both leaching and physical tests of raw and chemically fixed industrial wastes and FGD sludges. The intent of the study is to examine the potential environmental impact of raw sludge disposal and to assess the technical merits of sludge fixation as a disposal pretreatment process. Both objectives are being accomplished by leachate testing, which can be evaluated by comparison to the raw sludges and by durability testing, which reflects the environmental stability of the fixed products. Major points of discussion within this report are the methods for physical and chemical analyses, documentation of the various sludge fixation processes, and a discussion of physical and chemical data that are presently available. Chemical properties related to leachate testing include the descriptive parameters pH and conductivity, plus the pollutants sulfate and copper.
