At least 29 lead battery recycling sites are or have been slated for investigation and possible remediation under the Superfund program. The paper condenses information regarding the characteristics and remediation of these sites. The information provided includes: (1) description of operations commonly conducted, and wastes generated; (2) technologies implemented or selected for site remediation; (3) case studies of treatability studies on common wastes; (4) past experience regarding the recyclability of materials found at the sites, and (5) profiles of potentially applicable innovative treatment technologies.
