The objective of the report is to provide federal Remedial Project Managers (RPMs) and their supporting contractors with information to facilitate the selection of treatment alternatives and cleanup services at lead battery recycling sites. It tailors the RI/FS process to lead battery recycling sites, evaluates currently used treatments, identifies remediation alternatives, and evaluates the expected effectiveness of treatments. Eleven RI/FS and fifteen ROD documents for lead battery sites were the primary sources of information. Treatability studies are also addressed. Relevant examples drawn from typical results of such studies conducted for lead battery recycling sites are presented. Also, the technologies commonly proposed in RI/FS and RODs are described and evaluated against six of the nine EPA evaluation criteria (compliance with ARARs; long-term effectiveness and permanence; reduction of toxicity, mobility, or volume; short-term effectiveness; implementability; and cost). The technologies are compared to underline their salient advantages and disadvantages, and to emphasize those treatments most likely to be successful in remediating lead battery recycling sites. Innovative and emerging technologies, which have the potential to treat lead-contaminated wastes are also mentioned in the document.
