This report discusses the feasibility of solidifying or stabilizing hazardous industrial wastes that are already in place at a landfill. Solidification methods considered include (1) incorporating the waste into solids, (2) fusing the waste with soil, and (3) isolating the waste by enclosing it in impermeable inert envelopes or smaller capsules. None of the solidification methods appears generally applicable to large landfills containing mixed industrial wastes, although two methods appear promising for some specific applications. The more promising methods were examined for possible application at the 8.5 acre LaBounty site at Charles City, Iowa. None of the solidification/stabilization methods appears suitable for in situ application at this site because of large variations in the permeability of the fill material and the diverse chemical composition of the wastes. This report was submitted in fulfillment of Contract No. 68-02-3665 by the Mitre Corporation under sponsorship of the USEPA. This report covers the period November 1981 to March 1982 and work was completed as of April 1982.
