Alumumium industry wastes including salt slags, spent pot liner and drosses are generally classed as hazardous because of their potential to react with water, even moisture in the air, to create toxic and explosive gases.
Moreover, they are highly variable from smelter to smelter and batch to batch.
In order to treat, or even safely store these wastes and where there is a potential for hydrolysis reactions to occur, it is essential to be able to charcterise them physically & chemically to understand the risks and hazards involved.
We can prepare all the required assessments for safe handling and storage and we can analyse all outputs from processing to assess their suitabilty, once treated, as secondary resources. If necessary, we can test and evaluate to confirm they meet WAC (waste acceptance criteria) for disposal as non hazardous, inert wastes.
Our experts can help customers with compiling reports for enviromental and other regulators fully supported by our analytical laboratory team.
We are well equipped with facilities, equipment and personnel to do this. We are able to prepare analyses using methods (amongst others) including:-
