Industrial Applications

Active Lead Smelter

The client was generating sixty (60) tons of lead (Pb) and barium (Ba) contaminated slag per day that failed the TCLP and was transporting the hazardous slag to a Part B permitted TSDS.

An optimization study was conducted to determine the TerraBond®-TS dose rate necessary to lower the leachability concentration of Pb (<0.75 mg/L) and Ba (20mg/L) as required to meet the LDR standards.

Currently the client is saving in excess of $1,000,000 by treating the slag on-site with TerraBond®-TS and transporting the slag off-site as a non-hazardous industrial waste for disposal into a Subtitle D land disposal facility.
