Potential alternative treatment methods are evaluated for a total of 24 waste streams selected from the report 'Assessment of Industrial Hazardous Waste Practices of the Organic Chemicals, Pesticides and Explosives Industries'. Potential alternatives are physical, chemical and biological processes identified in the report 'Analysis of Potential Application of Physical, Chemical and Biological Treatment Techniques to Hazardous Waste Management'. The primary objectives are to select alternative treatment methods capable of recovering resources, energy and/or detoxification. Benefits and environmental advantages and disadvantages are discussed. Costs for each method are tabulated and compared with incineration and land disposal. Study results indicate: (1) Potential opportunities for finding economically and environmentally sound alternatives to incineration or land disposal for waste streams; (2) Promising techniques for recovery of raw materials, resources, for recycling intermediate, for improving yield, and for sale of by-products; (3) Strong needs for research, development and demonstration projects by chemical manufacturers for their own plant wastes.
