Iron Phosphate Glasses: An Alternative for Vitrifying Certain Nuclear Wastes

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The two, multifaceted objectives of this research project are to (1) investigate the feasibility of vitrifying 2 or 3 high priority wastes, as identified by the Tank Focus Area group, using iron phosphate glasses (i.e., determine chemical durability as a function of waste loading, establish maximum usable waste loading, evaluate melt characteristics and wasteform properties), and (2) acquire the technical data for the types of raw materials and optimized melting and processing parameters that can be used to produce practical-size (prototype) quantities of iron phosphate glassy wasteforms. This research is intended to provide the scientific and engineering knowledge that is ... continued below

This research is intended to provide the scientific and engineering knowledge that is needed to utilize iron phosphate glasses for vitrifying selected nuclear wastes on a production scale.
