A demonstration was conducted to vitrify municipal solid waste (MWS) combustor air pollution control residue (APC) under the USEPA Municipal Waste Innovative Technology Evaluation Program. A duplicate demonstration was conducted using a process developed by Corning Inc. in a cold crown melter. The resulting vitrified product was monophased, homogeneous, and physically durable glass. Cadmium, chromium, copper, lead, and zinc did not volatilize during the vitrification process. These contaminants did not leach from the vitrified product based on the Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure, the Availability Leaching Test, the Monolithic Leaching Test, or the Accelerated Strong Acid Durability Test. All data were very similar indicating the vitrification process is reproducible.
