Abstract: This report presents the results of testing performed on a stabilized/solidified (S/S) inorganic wood-preserving waste. The contaminants found in the waste are primarily arsenic and chromium. Three SIS processes were evaluated in this study. They include the following: (a) a cement process, (b) a kiln dust process, and (c) a lime/fly ash process. Physical and leaching characteristics of the S/S waste materials were evaluated. Physical characteristics were evaluated using the unconfined compressive strength test. The waste-leaching characteristics were evaluated using the toxicity characteristic leaching procedure (TCLP). Physical test results showed that S/S waste developed 28-day strengths ranging from 44 to 916 psi. Results of the chemical leach tests showed that S/S did reduce the amount of arsenic and chromium found in the extract, but the levels were not met for the TCLP test.
