The suitability of six minerals; silica, diatomaceous earth, kaolin, bauxite, alumina and attapulgite clay, as potential sorbents for the capture and immobilization of trace metals was evaluated. The behavior of five trace metals; arsenic, cadmium, chromium, lead and nickel was tested. The objective of the test program was to evaluate the candidate sorbents for their ability to limit vaporization by retaining the trace metals in the mineral matrix, and the degree to which they retain the trace metals as measured by TCLP extraction. Bench-scale tests were conducted in the IRF's thermal treatability unit. The test results indicate that under specific conditions, varying for each mineral, all of the minerals limit metal vaporization, and/or TCLP leachability.
