The five-year schedule for the minimization and restrictions on the disposal of hazardous wastes onto the land is described. Two major items are causing a shift in the way hazardous wastes are managed in the United States. Because of liability for hazardous wastes, companies are seeking methods which will detoxify or destroy these wastes. Under the RCRA amendments, best demonstrated available technology (BDAT) is being determined for each waste stream and is considered here. A description of the types of wastes not readily treated by current technologies and some of the deficiencies of these technologies are covered. A description of the technologies currently used in the Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) Program.
