Abstract

The method of treatment during transport of solid waste by depositing the solid waste on the surface of a molten stream of lead traveling in one direction whereby organic material in the waste is subjected to thermal degradation, metals and other materials in the waste which are insoluble in the molten lead and of lesser specific gravity remain on the surface of the molten lead for removal and recovery while metals and other materials which are soluble in the molten lead dissolve in the molten lead for separation from the remainder while metal and materials which are insoluble in the molten lead and of higher specific gravity fall to the bottom of the stream of molten lead.
