Hazardous Waste Treatment
National Summary
Hazardous waste treatment is the application of chemical, biological, or physical processes to hazardous waste or contaminated materials to permanently change their condition. Treatment is designed to destroy the contaminants or change them so that they are either no longer hazardous or are less hazardous. As a result of treatment, the waste may be neutralized, energy or material resources may be recovered from the waste, the waste may be made less hazardous, and/or it may be made safer and more manageable for transportation, storage, or disposal.
