- Preliminary glass development was carried out on four surrogate wastes. The surrogate wastes evaluated were ash and sludge from Oak Ridge National Laboratory, sludge from Rocky Flats, and sludge from Los Alamos National Laboratory. The work involved numerous melting trails followed by visual homogeneity examination and short-duration leach testing on glass specimens. Melter testing on selected compositions was performed with a laboratory-scale joule-heated furnace. With proper formulations and melter operating parameters, these mixed wastes appear to be readily adaptable to available vitrification technology.
