The Mercury Working Group under the Mixed Waste Focus Area sponsored a demonstration in which two commercial vendors demonstrated their technologies for the treatment of radioactive mercury from various DOE sites. The project, described in this report, addresses the need for data on the vapor pressure and degradation occurring in amalgamated mercury mixed low-level wastes generated during these demonstrations under a variety of conditions.
