Status of immobilization for disposition of surplus fissile materials

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

An international team was assembled for the purpose of selecting suitable immobilization forms and processing technologies for the Fissile Materials Deposition Program Office. As a reference point, the team used the NAS study but did not limit their recommendations to those of the NAS. As a result, two basic forms were selected and the processing alternatives to provide those two forms were defined. Environmental data have been supplied to support a preliminary environmental impact statement for the disposition program. The immobilization program has also entered the R&D Phase and progress has been made on the formulation of both glass and ... continued below

As a result, two basic forms were selected and the processing alternatives to provide those two forms were defined. Environmental data have been supplied to support a preliminary environmental impact statement for the disposition program. The immobilization program has also entered the R&D Phase and progress has been made on the formulation of both glass and ceramic forms. Samples of both glass and ceramics containing tens of grams of plutonium have been prepared which indicate that the required concentration range can be obtained. Long-term leach tests to verify performance requirements in the repository are also under way.
