A Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) technology demonstration was conducted in February and March 1997 to evaluate the potential applicability and effectiveness of the Geotech Development Corporation Cold Top ex-situ vitrification technology on chromium-contaminated soils. One primary and five secondary objectives were identified for the SITE demonstration. The primary objective was to develop test data to evaluate whether waste and product streams from the Cold Top vitrification system pilot plant were capable of meeting the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) definitions of a nonhazardous waste, based on the stream's leachable chromium content. Secondary objectives were to determine: (1) partitioning of chromium and hexavalent chromium from the contaminated soil into various waste and product streams; (2) the ability of the vitrified product to meet New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection (NJDEP) criteria for use as fill material (such as road construction aggregate); (3) the system's ability to meet applicable compliance regulations for air emissions of dioxins, furans, trace metals, particulates, and hydrogen chloride; (4) uncontrolled air emissions of the oxides of nitrogen, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, and total hydrocarbons from the vitrification unit; and (5) projected operating costs of the technology per ton of soil.
