High-Level Radioactive Insoluble Waste Preparation for Vitrification

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

At the Savannah River Plant a process has been developed for immobilizing high-level radioactive waste in a borosilicate glass. The waste is currently stored as soluble salts and insoluble solids. Insoluble waste as stored requires further processing before vitrification is possible. The processed required have been developed and demonstrated with actual waste. They include removal of aluminum in some waste, washing soluble salts out of the insoluble waste, and mercury stripping. Each of the processes and the results with actual SRP waste will be discussed. The benefits of each step will also be included.
