COGNIS TERRAMET® LEAD EXTRACTION PROCESS; INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY EVALUATION REPORT
Banerjee, P., T. Gioia, AND J. Swano. COGNIS TERRAMET® LEAD EXTRACTION PROCESS; INNOVATIVE TECHNOLOGY EVALUATION REPORT. EPA/540/R-96/535, 1998.
This report documents an evaluation of lead removal from sands and fines fractions of contaminated soils by the COGNIS TERRAMET® lead extraction process (COGNIS process). The evaluation was performed under the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) Program. The performance information upon which this report is based was gathered during a 4-day period (August 2-5, 1994) during operation of the COGNIS process on sands and fines separated from about 400 metric tons of contaminated soils from a small arms ammunition burning/disposal area (Site F) at the Twin Cities Army Ammunition Plant (TCAAP) in New Brighton, Minnesota. The COGNIS Process, as configured for TCAAP Site F, uses two parallel leaching systems ) one for sand-sized particles and one for fines.
