In-Situ vitrification uses electrical power to heat and melt soil, dewatered sludge, mine tailings, buried wastes, and sediments contaminated with organic, inorganic, and metal-bearing hazardous wastes. The molten materials cools to form a hard, monolithic, chemically inert, stable glass and crystalline product that incorporates the thermally stable inorganic compounds and heavy metals in the hazardous waste. The slag product material is glass-like with very low leaching characteristics. The bulletin provides information on the technology applicability, the technology limitations, a description of the technology, the types of residuals produced, site requirements, the latest performance data, the status of the technology, and sources of further information.
