Cement-Lock is a virtually odorless thermal-chemical technology that converts contaminated sediment and hazardous waste to Ecomelt, a non-leachable, harmless beneficial-use product.
The Toxicity Characteristic Leaching Procedure results demonstrate that Ecomelt® does not leach any priority metals above regulatory limits.
Depending on exposure, such contaminants can cause cancer and harm most human organs, and kill or sicken wildlife. Coal ash is the second largest source of industrial waste in the country.
Contaminated sediment of toxic waste can be converted to usuable ecomelt through the cement-lock process.
The purpose of the remedy selection process is to implement remedies that eliminate, reduce, or control risks to human health and the environment. Remedial actions are to be implemented as soon as site data and information make it possible to do so.
