The primary objective of the Soliditech, Inc. solidification/stabilization demonstration was to develop reliable performance and cost information. The demonstration took place at the Imperial Oil Company/Champion Chemical Company Superfund site in Morganville, New Jersey. Contamination at this site includes PCBs, various metals, and oil and grease. The Soliditech process mixes the waste material with Urrichem, a proprietary reagent; proprietary additives; pozzolanic materials or cement (cement was used for the demonstration); and water, in an open-topped concrete mixer. The technical criteria used to evaluate the effectiveness of the Soliditech process were contaminant mobility, based upon leaching and permeability tests; and the structural integrity of the solidified material, based upon physical and morphological tests. The treated wastes had significant structural integrity, low permeability, and higher bulk density than the untreated wastes. pH values of the treated wastes were highly influenced by alkalinity of the portland cement added during treatment. Documentation will consist of two reports. This one is the Application Analysis Report that provides an interpretation of the data, and discusses the potential applicability of the technology.
