liquid waste solidification Articles

  • Solidification/Stabilization

    Introduction: As for in situ solidification/stabilization (S/S), ex situ S/S contaminants are physically bound or enclosed within a stabilized mass (solidification), or chemical reactions are induced between the stabilizing agent and contaminants to reduce their mobility (stabilization). Ex situ S/S, however, typically requires disposal of the resultant materials. Under CERCLA material can be ...

  • Cementatious considerations for medical waste solidification

    The most common cause for alarm in the medical field pertaining to waste disposal is the exposure of the worker to infectious wastes and contraction of diseases from these wastes. With the increased risk of exposure to blood borne pathogens in handling body fluids and disposal of items that have been tainted by these fluids, awareness and education for the prevention of percutaneous wounds is the ...

  • Getting ahead of the Caribou - pitdry process—innovative solidification solution for spent drilling fluids

    An oil company has been producing oil and gas in British Columbia’s Southern Foothills since 1992. The operator has continuously invested in the area and recently opened up new gas producing wells northwest of Fort St John, the largest city in the northeast region of British Columbia. The new wells are situated 4,600 feet above sea level in a rigid mountain terrain. The viable way to connect the ...

  • Ecological solution of the problem of handling liquid radioactive wastes – LRW (by the example of FSUE SSC RF RIAR)

    A sharp reduction of nuclear waste amounts is possible if their elements are considered as source material of atomic complexes – SMAC. The prospect of their possible salvaging will require technological changes and ensuring safety of storage of the material till the need arises. Long experience in deep liquid radioactive waste disposal and accounting, calculations, and motivations demonstrate ...

  • Composition, morphology, properties of coal fly ash microspheres and their application for conditioning liquid radioactive waste

    Using methods of the Mossbauer spectroscopy, scanning electron microscopy, and thermodynamic analysis of phase formation in silicate multi-component melts, the detailed study of composition, morphology, and properties of fly ash microspheres resulting from combustion of three coals (Irsha-Borodinskii, Kuznetskii and Ekibastuzskii) was carried out. About 60 microspherical products with an iron ...

  • How to Deal with Drilling Waste

    At present, environmental protection is a basic state policy in China, and it has been a strategic mission and goal for our country to maintain a sustainable development of society, economy and environment. Along with the continuous improvement of environmental laws and the increasing environmental awareness among people, the departments concerned have successively enacted various environmental ...


  • Development of the technology for localisation and isolation from biosphere of outdoor liquid radwaste storage basins

    The approaches were proposed for localisation and isolation of outdoor liquid radwaste storage basins from the biosphere. The lab research findings showed immobilisation of radioactive sludges into a compound and drying-up of liquid phase using porous vitrocrystalline forms (VCF) using as example actual solid and liquid phases from the MCC's storage basins. The effectiveness of the radionuclide ...

  • Hazardous waste and not, Baioni-Dicatech system

    The identification, characterization and restoration of contaminated areas now represent a big environmental issue, both at European and national level. In the major industrialized countries the issue of contaminated land has come out in all its gravity in the late seventies when, against a widespread awakening of environmental consciousness, important pollutions events emerged. Consequently, in ...

  • Fluid waste management and disposal practices

    Prior to the early 80s and the introduction of AIDS into our society, infection control practices were designed almost exclusively to protect the patient from developing a nosocomial infection an infection acquired after admission to the hospital. Protocols were focused on protecting the patient, with little or no emphasis on the health care workers potential to become infected. Hepatitis B has ...

  • In-Situ thermal treatment of MGP waste and creosote

    Abstract: Remediation of coal tar at former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) sites, and creosote associated with wood preservative sites is challenging due to the viscous nature of the dense non-aqueous phase liquid (DNAPL) and the modest solubility and vapor pressure of the contaminants of concern (COCs). DNAPL seepage into surface water bodies, as well as groundwater plumes formed by the most ...

  • Common Treatment Technologies for Radionuclides in Soil, Sediment, and Sludge

    Unlike organic contaminants (and similar to metals), radionuclides cannot be destroyed or degraded; therefore, remediation technologies applicable to radionuclides involve separation, concentration/volume reduction, and/or immobilization. The most commonly used treatment technology for radionuclides in soil, sediment, and sludge is solidification/stabilization (S/S). This treatment technology is ...

  • Nuclear Plant in southeastern United States case study

    Turning Liquid Waste into Solid Money Savings using QUIK-SOLID© Project Background: A nuclear plant located in southeastern United States had to dispose of approximately 7,000 gallons (26,488 L) of liquid sludge that resulted from aggressive preventive maintenance activities.
