The study was conducted to evaluate the effectiveness of commercial solidification techniques for immobilizing contaminants in municipal incinerator ash. Six different ash samples from five plants were used. None of the ash samples contained sufficient organics for detection, consequently such analyses were not conducted on the solidified samples. Inorganic analyses were made for thirteen metals, five of which were the most prevalent - they were calcium, copper, lead, sodium and zinc. Three solidification techniques were used, all showed significant containment potential.
