ABSTRACT
This study is examined to assess teachability of Pb-doped solidified waste forms using Portland cement and calcite. X-ray diffraction was used for identification of mineral transformations occurring on the solidified waste materials formed during the leaching process. Particular attention is given to the leaching effects of calcite (CaCOj) in the solidification/stabilization of lead. Rapid diffusion of lead substances (K.P20) at the attack of acid is mainly related to dissolution rate of lead precipitates located in larger pores (capillary pores) and their openness in cavities. On the other hand, additional calcite on lead contaminated materials (KC5P20, K.CT0P20) including even a lot of lead precipitates in cavity areas such as KP20 are presumably very resistant to acid attack because enhanced calcium-silicate-hydrate (C-S-H) due to accelerating effect of calcite strongly encapsulates/protects even portlanditc as well as lead precipitates, which not much dissolves even up to the 5*1 leach.
