    Stabilization/solidification technologies are used widely for treating both inorganic and organic waste materials. Unfortunately, some of these processes have turned out to be simple adsorption/dilution phenomena. For a true stabilization/solidification process, the binder and the waste must interact chemically to create chemical bonding. Based on our past investigations in this area, some guidelines for evaluating the permanence of a stabilization/solidification process are presented in this paper.
