- In well-drained salt cakes where no capillary-held mother liquor was present, the reaction between NaOH and CO/sub 2/(g) produced enough solids to lower the permeability by a factor of 20. This same reaction lowered the permeability by at least three orders of magnitude when the salt cake was saturated with mother liquor. Thus, while the reaction between CO/sub 2/ and NaOH can dry the liquids in Hanford salt cake, the permeability is decreased to such an extent that use of this method becomes impracticable. (auth)
