This report evaluates the Chemical Waste Management, Inc. (CWM), PO*WW*ER(TM) technology's ability to remove volatile organic compounds (VOC), semivolatile organic compounds (SVOC), ammonia, cyanide, metals, and other inorganic contaminants from aqueous wastes. This evaluation is based on treatment performance and cost data obtained from the Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) demonstration and 11 case studies conducted by CWM. The PO*WW*ER(TM) system reduces the volume of an aqueous waste and catalytically oxidizes volatile contaminants. The PO*WW*ER(TM) system consists primarily of (1) an evaporator that reduces influent wastewater volume, (2) a catalytic oxidizer that oxidizes the volatile contaminants in the vapor stream from the evaporator, (3) a scrubber that removes acid gases formed during oxidation, and (4) a condenser that condenses the vapor stream leaving the scrubber. This report also discusses the applicability of the PO*WW*ER(TM) system based on compliance with regulatory requirements, implementability, short-term impact, and long-term effectiveness. In addition, factors influencing the technology's performance in meeting these criteria and evaluation limitations are discussed.
