Abstract : This report documents the review and analysis of methods considered for disposing of dried waste salts at RMA. Many disposal techniques proved inadequate because they were not ecologically sound, not cost effective, or beyond the state-of-the-art. Those that appeared feasible were subjected to a systems analysis to establish an objective relative comparison. Variables considered were cost, schedule, ecological safety, and a relative figure of merit schedule, ecological safety, and a relative figure of merit based on how well the disposal method was defined and verified. -BKA
