USE OF WASTE SULFATE FOR REMEDIAL TREATMENT OF SOILS. VOLUME I. DISCUSSION OF RESULTS
The effects of waste sulfate (phosphogypsum from fertilizer manufacture, flue gas desulfurization solids, and neutralized acid mine drainage solids) on physical and strength properties of soils have been studied. Waste sulfate alone has little effect on soil strengths. However, if it is used in combination with lime, higher strengths can be achieved with waste sulfate/lime than can be obtained with equivalent lime treatment because of soil-sulfate-lime reactions. Fly ash can be used with waste sulfate/lime mixtures to improve strengths further. Cement kiln dust has been shown to be an effective substitute for lime as a soil stabilizer. The report is presented in two volumes. Volume I--Discussion of Results--describes the experimental work and contains the interpretation of data and conclusions and recommendations.
