Perma-Fix offers macroencapsulation services. Our facility
personnel will empty the container to screen the debris out and remove
any prohibited items and separating any identified liquids. This
solid waste will then be prepared for treatment in accordance with the
“Alternative Treatment Standard for Debris” (40 CFR 268.45).
The macroencapsulation process involves sorting, segregating and supercompaction of mixed debris wastes thus resulting
in a volume reduction ratio of approximately 2.5:1.
The specific treatment will either be a Chemical Extraction or Macroencapsulation
process. The method selected will be dependent upon the waste matrix
and the waste characteristics. Final disposal of macroencapsulated
wastes can be provided at Hanford or the Nevada National Security Site.
