The document is intended to serve as an introduction to technologies which can be used in the treatment of hazardous wastes. While the contents of this document are not exhaustive, it is believed that most treatment processes are discussed. Each technology discussion includes a description of the basis of the technology, a brief discussion of the applicability and limitations of that technology, the status of the technology, a non-exhaustive listing of vendors, suppliers or developers and when appropriate, a process diagram for a typical application of that technology. Furthermore, for many of the technologies, a tabular listing of specific data needed by an engineer designing a treatment system is included. Technologies are categorized on the basis of whether they are considered physical treatment, chemical treatment, biological treatment, thermal treatment (incineration) or stabilization/fixation.
