Unit costs are estimated for 16 treatment and 5 disposal techniques applicable to hazardous wastes from the organic chemicals, inorganic chemicals, and electroplating and metal finishing industries. Each technology was evaluated by unit processes or modules, and computer-linked models developed for calculating capital and operating costs at the unit process level. Costs were aggregated at the technology level including applicable indirect costs and maintenance costs. Data files were designed to indicate economies of scale for 5 levels of throughput. Life cycle average unit costs are presented in both tabular and graphic form.
