Abstract : The objectives of Task Order No. 8 to: review the industrial data base for promising hazardous materials treatment technologies; select an ultimately evaluate the candidate technologies with laboratory testing; and prepare a preliminary process design and cost estimate for the most promising technologies. Attention was to be directed particularly to three innovative thermal destruction technologies as typified by: in-situ vitrification; circulating bed combustion; and glass furnace incineration. However, we were also instructed to evaluate other technologies which we might consider to be equally innovative. Subsequent selection and evaluation of technologies in laboratory/pilot-scale equipment was to be directed especially to the materials in Basin F at Rocky Mountain Arsenal (R MA). Based on the conceptualized flowsheets and the criteria for performance of the various technologies, it became apparent that encapsulation and high temperature processes were the leading contenders for future evaluation in small-scale and/or pilot plant tests.
