This report was submitted by the University of Cincinnati (UC) in fulfillment of Contract No. 68-C7-0057 under the sponsorship of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). This report covers a period from June 1999 through July 2000; laboratory work was completed as of July 2000. This report evaluates the chemical stability of spent mercuric chloride catalyst in an aqueous environment before and after treatment with stabilizing agents. The stabilizing agents evaluated in this study are sulfide and phosphate. Samples obtained by UC and EPA personnel at the Borden Chemicals and Plastics (BCP) plant on June 10, 1999 were characterized for total mercury content, pH, and acidity prior to performing the leaching tests on untreated waste. Leaching tests and analytical work performed by UC and their contract laboratories included the toxicity characteristic leaching procedure (TCLP), solid stability in water, and leaching at constant and variable pH values.
