Abstract Research is being conducted to investigate closure methods for lagoons containing TNT and RDX wastes (pink water). Research has included (1) an evaluation of existing asphalt encapsulation techniques for hazardous wastes, (2) an evaluation of alternative heating/mixing systems, (3) review of the properties of various asphalt products that may be used, (4) laboratory experiments on the temperature and holding times required for thermal breakdown of the various compounds present in the sludge, and (5) preliminary design of a pilot mixer/heating system. A synthetic sludge with physical properties similar to the actual sludge will be used during the initial runs and during modifications of the pilot system. Actual lagoon sludge will be used in the field for the final testing.
