Investigations were conducted of new and emerging technologies for the disposal of hazardous wastes. These methods involve new technologies or a recent variation of an established one. In addition, a questionnaire survey was made of potential users of hazardous waste information. The need for a data base for emerging hazardous waste technologies and/or a newsletter was evaluated. Information on the emerging technologies was acquired by computerized search, library searching, and personal contacts. The emerging technologies discussed include molten salt combustion, fluidized bed incineration, high energy electron treatment of trace organic compounds in aqueous solution, the catalyzed wet oxidation of toxic chemicals, dehalogenation of compounds by treatment with ultraviolet (UV) light and hydrogen, UV/chlorinolysis of organics in aqueous solution, the catalytic hydrogenation-dechlorination of polychlorinated biphenyls (PCB's), and ultraviolet/ozone destruction. Theory, specific wastes treated, and economics are discussed.
