Abstract : This document collates information on hazardous waste remediation technologies pertaining to Solidification and Stabilization (S /S) used to clean up hazardous waste sites. An explanation of these solidification and stabilization processes provides an insight into the effects that S/S technologies have on hazardous wastes. S/S technologies can ( 1 ) improve the handling and physical characteristics of the waste (2) decrease the surface area of the waste across which transfer or loss of contaminants can occur, and (3) limit the mobility of hazardous constituents of the waste. The goal of this document is to evaluate the S/S technologies using standardized evaluation criteria The standardized criteria allows comparison of different technologies and selection of the technology which provides the best remediation or clean-up per dollar spent. There are many possible criteria which can be used to evaluate the compatibility and meets of competing remediation technologies. The criteria used in this document are chemical/physical compatibility between the S/S technology and the waste being treated, contaminant leach rate from the final solidified product, and life cycle cost.
