    Abstract

    Chemical compatibility testing (EPA Method 9090) has been applied to many combinations of natural and synthetic leachates and geomembranes. A number of commercial laboratories are currently performing the method, and significant experience has been gained in its application. This paper will describe some practical aspects of chemical compatibility testing which have implications for proper selection of materials for hazardous waste containment.
