Abstract :
Disposal of sludge of lime treated spent liquor pickling unit, as per the Act of Hazardous Waste (Management and Handling) Rules, 1989 is not easy. Its transportation and construction of lined disposal sites pose very severe problem. In the normal practice, sludge is being disposed off on sides of roads and railway tracks to generally fill the low-lying areas. This may cause severe health hazards. An attempt has therefore been made to utilize the treated spent liquor sludge in cement concrete. Design mix M20 has been prepared with varying concentration of sludge in the laboratory. Toxicity characteristics leaching procedure (TCLP) test as per USEPA has been carried out on cement concrete cubes.
