Numerous Superfund sites throughout the United States are contaminated with toxic metals. Battery reclamation, lead smelting, and lead-based paint manufacturing are examples of processes that could result in lead-contaminated soils. Metals, unlike many hazardous organic constituents, cannot be degraded or readily detoxified. This report presents information on metals extraction technologies that are currently in various stages of development, soil characteristics that affect metals extraction, chelating agents used in the soil washing of lead-contaminated soils, and membranes used to separate metal cations. The information presented in this report was obtained from a literature search conducted to investigate metals extraction processes for removing lead from soils.
