The report describes an in-depth assessment of eight alternative treatment processes that show potential for decontaiminating polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB)-contaiminated sediments and the selection of three of them for thorough test and evaluation. The comparison of these processes as to their technical performance, the availability of a test system, the test and evaluatoin effort required, the projected time to commercial availability, and the probable cost of their application should be useful to EPA Regional Offices, to those concerned with developing hazardous waste treatment regulations, and to those interested in the development of new and innovative treatments.
