SUPERFUND TREATABILITY CLEARINGHOUSE: BDAT FOR SOLIDIFICATION/STABILIZATION TECHNOLOGY FOR SUPERFUND SOILS (DRAFT FINAL REPORT)
U.S. EPA. SUPERFUND TREATABILITY CLEARINGHOUSE: BDAT FOR SOLIDIFICATION/STABILIZATION TECHNOLOGY FOR SUPERFUND SOILS (DRAFT FINAL REPORT). U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Washington, D.C., EPA/540/2-89/050, 1989.
This report evaluates the performance of solidification as a method for treating solids from Superfund sites. Tests were conducted on four different artificially contaminated soils which are representative of soils found at the sites. Contaminated soils were solidified using common solidification agents or binders. Samples were tested for unconfined compressibility at various times after solidification and certain samples were subjected to the toxic contaminants/leach procedure (TCLP) tests and total waste analysis. Volatile organics levels were also measured during solidification and long term set up the soils.
