Q. What is Inertization?
The process of "inertization" involves mixing waste with cement and other substances before disposal in order to minimize the risk of toxic substance contained in the waste migrating into surface water or ground water. A typical proportion of the mixture is: 65% pharmaceutical waste, 15% lime, 15% cement and 5% water. A homogenous mass is formed and cubes or pellets are produced on site and then transported to suitable storage site.
