This preliminary report has revealed new information on several highly toxic substances which exist within the continental U.S. for which there is no satisfactory means of disposal. They exist in multiple ton quantities, as well as small centigram batches at a multitude of locations. They are, specifically, materials in search of a disposal method, such as the microwave plasma detoxification process (MWP). These materials which have been surveyed for suitability in the MWP include the following exceedingly dangerous compounds and mixtures: Cancer-causing nitrosamines, vinyl and vinylidene chlorides, dioxin-containing organohalogens, and aromatic amine compounds which heretofore have been considered only as oddities, or as being present only in small quantities; acute-toxicity organometallic compounds and heavy metal complexes, such as mercury, arsenic, cadmium, and lead compounds, derived from industrial processes and pesticides; and nerve-poisons from military sources, which include organophosphorus chemicals stock-piled above ground, and from pesticide wastes which are only slightly less hazardous.
