Solidification and storage of Savannah River Plant radioactive waste

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A conceptual process for solidification of SRP aqueous waste into high- integrity, low-leachable forms was developed. The process separates about 99.9 percent of the biological hazard from approximately 97 percent of the waste. The major biological hazard remaining in the residual salt is $sup 106$Ru, which has a 369-day half-life. Sludge and zeolite can be solidified into concrete or glass. Cost-risk analyses are being made to determine which of these forms is preferred for SRP waste. Also, studies on other parts of the conceptual process are in progress. (auth)
