Title:LAND DISPOSAL RESTRICTIONS TREATMENT STANDARD FOR DISCARDED RADIOACTIVE CONTAMINATED LEAD ACID BATTERIES
RCRA Online Number:14554
Date:08/09/2001
To:Lawrence
From:Cotsworth
Organization of Recipient:Department of Energy
Description: The appropriate LDR treatment method for radioactively contaminated lead acid batteries is macroencapsulation. Macroencapsulation applies not only to lead shielding, but to other elemental forms of lead. This technology will require less worker exposure than lead recovery (i.e., smelting) of radioactive batteries. Lead recovery would also radioactively contaminate the entire mass lead that was recovered, making it unusable.
