The document is an evaluation of the performance of the Retech Inc. Plasma Centrifugal Furnace (PCF) and its applicability as a treatment technique for soils contaminated with organic and/or inorganic compounds. Both the technical and economic aspects of the technology were examined. A demonstration of the Retech furnace was conducted under the Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation Program at the Department of Energy's Component Development and Integration Facility in Butte, Montana. Operational data, along with sampling and analysis information, were carefully compiled to establish a data base against which other available data, as well as the vendor's claims for the technology, have been compared and evaluated. Conclusions concerning the technology's suitability for use in immobilizing contaminants in the feed soil were reached, and extrapolations regarding applications at other sites with different contaminants and soil types were made.
