This study assesses the alternatives to landfill disposal of potentially hazardous industrial wastes generated by the metals smelting and refining industries. The alternatives analyzed include chemical landfill, precipitation, reduction roasting, evaporation, dewatering, and sintering. The processes analyzed identify feasible alternatives that enable materials or energy recovery, waste detoxification or immobilization, and volume reduction for comparison with landfill disposal. Incineration was not a viable option for this industry's wastes and was, therefore, not examined in this study.
Prepared for the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Office of Solid Waste Management Programs under Contract No. 68-01-4312. "An environmental protection publication (SW-153c)--in the solid waste management series." Bibliography: pages A-13.
Several categories of metals smelthing and refining industries, whose wastes were classified as potentially hazardous were examined by EPA Contract No. 68-01-2604, "Assessment of Industrial Hazardous Waste Practices in the Metal Smelting and Refining Industry." Alternatives to landfill disposal were evaluated.
