Abstract
The report contains data, analysis, and rationale that define and identify hazardous waste streams according to industry classification and by hazardous constituents. A priority ranking system is proposed which may be employed to develop a priority-of-concern list of hazardous wastes. Site-types are identified; process selection and design concepts are described and include system flow diagrams and various sub-systems (e.g. liquids-solids separation module, resource recovery, and effluent monitoring); issues of transportation of hazardous wastes are described; and detailed cost estimates for 'small', 'medium', and 'large' site-types are developed.
