Large quantities of mixed low level waste (MLLW) that fall under the Toxic Substances
Control Act (TSCA) exist aid will continue to be generated during D&D operations at DOE sites
across the country. Currently, the volume of these wastes is 23,500 n, and the majority of these
wastes (i.e., almost 19,000 n) consist of PCBs and PCB-contaminated materials. No proposed
process for the recovery and/or destruction of these persistent pollutants has emerged as the
preferred choice for DOE cleanup.
Collaborating researchers at the University of South Carolina (USC), Clemson University
(Clemson University), and the Savannah River Technology Center (SRTC), under the direction
of the South Carolina Universities Research and Education Foundation (SCUREF), have
performed initial research and development on a combined PCB extraction/destruction process
for the PCB-contaminated solids that are generated during D&D activities. Extraction is
Here’s what’s next.
