synrocANSTO’s low-risk tailored waste forms are designed to lock up high-level nuclear waste. They offer overall cost and processing schedule savings worth billions of dollars via higher waste loadings, enhanced chemical durability, increased processing flexibility and lower off-gas emissions.

The waste form is the key component of the immobilization process. It determines the type of nuclear waste that can be immobilized, how well the waste is locked up, and ultimately the number of disposal canisters required (waste loading).

The expertise of the synrocANSTO team lies in tailoring the design of the ceramic or glass-ceramic waste form and the associated process technology to suit the unique characteristics of the waste, which enables these cost savings to be realized.
