Mercury treatment<260 ppm

All four of the Perma-Fix nuclear facilities can provide treatment of Mercury <260 ppm. Dependent upon the contaminated matrix, a Perma-Fix I stabilization process is typically used for soluble mercury in wastes in this category. This process chemically reduces the mercury to an insoluble, low-leaching form. This method is operated at ambient temperature and atmospheric pressure.
