The following case studies highlight the benefits
tailored waste forms offer to cleanup of problematic HLW.
Approximately 4400 m3 of
calcined reprocessed waste. The waste calcine consists of
components that are problematic to incorporation in glass,
which significantly restricts vitrification waste loadings.
Tailored glass-ceramic waste forms over come these
limitations and offer waste loadings in excess of
80%. Read more
and actinide waste streams
Actinide-rich waste streams offer unique immobilization
challenges. They typically have very long half-lives, may
be fissile and requiring criticality control measures, and
depending on their source can either be very pure or very
offers tailored waste forms for these wastes.
AFCI - separated waste streams from advanced reprocessing
Advanced reprocessing cycles will deliver separated waste
streams containing technetium, iodine, cesium and strontium
that pose unique challenges to radioactive waste
waste forms address these challenges. Read more ...
