- Shale fracturing is a process currently being used at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory for the permanent disposal of locally generated waste solutions. In this process, the waste is mixed with a solids blend of cement and other additives; the resulting grout is then injected into an impermeable shale formation at a depth of 700 to 1000 ft. A description of the process, the monitoring techniques that have been developed, the leach rates that have been observed, and some considerations of the impact on the environment are discussed.
