Stabilization/solidification (S/S) processes are effective in treating a variety of difficult to manage waste materials for reuse or disposal. S/S has been identified as the Best Demonstrated Available Technology for treating a wide range of Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) non-wastewater hazardous waste subcategories. S/S has been selected as the treatment technology of choice for 26% of the remedial actions complete at Superfund sites through fiscal year 1992. The standard bulk material handling and mixing equipment used in many S/S processes make the technology appear simple. The morphology and chemistry of S/S-treated waste are complex. Selection of the binder requires an understanding of the chemistry of the bulk material, the contaminants, and the binder. Battelle, under the direction of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, has prepared the Technical Resources Document (TRD) as a resource for the S/S user community and a guide to promote the best future application of S/S processes.
