Solidification/Stabilization Incinerated of Hospital Waste




Hospital Waste, Solidification/Stabilization


Solidification/stabilization (S/S) is a broadly used treatment for the management of polluted wastes, mostly those contaminated with substances categorised as hazardous in the United States. The treatment involves mixing a binding element into the contaminated waste. The treatment protects human health and the environment by halting contaminants within the treated material. Immobilization within the treated material avoids immigration of the pollutants to human, animal and plant receptors. S/S continues as a basis treatment technology for the treatment of radioactive waste, hazardous waste, and site remediation and brownfield improvement. In present study, the relative effectiveness of these S/S products is defined basically by two parameters strength and the leach resistance. MDD and OMC were estimated by conducting a series of improved proctor test in laboratory. Maximum dry density (MDD) increases at a point with increase in cement percentage and then it decreases continuously. Different type of binders used solidification/stabilization (S/S) as cement and lime. Also it is observed that the concentration of heavy metals decreased in leachate sample in 21 days leaching period in all type of S/S sample. As Incinerated hospital waste contains some toxic metals, it is necessary to check the migration of these toxic metals into sample due to XRF analysis.S/S is an actual treatment wide variation of organic and inorganic contaminants existing in polluted soil, sludge and sediment. The ability to competently treat a wide deviation of pollutants in the same media is a key reason why S/S is so frequently used in remediation.The effectiveness and wide-ranging use of S/S treatment for industrial hazardous waste and in remediation makes it important that ecological authorities appreciate the physical, chemical, and observing aspects of the technology as well as how to apply the technology in the field.
