The purpose of this project was to develop and evaluate techniques to minimize the volume of hazardous wastes that must be disposed. Current radiator cleaning and waste disposal operations at Fort Benning were defined through telephone interviews. Potential hazardous waste minimization (HAZMIN) techniques were identified by a literature review and contacting radiator service supply vendors, waste minimization specialists, and trade organizations. Identified HAZMIN techniques were grouped into four areas: operational modifications, equipment modifications, wastewater treatment, and sludge management. These techniques were then evaluated on the basis of their applicability to the operations at Fort Benning, technical effectiveness, cost, and degree of operational complexity.
