Conditioning wastes

All process wastes (produced in the course of reprocessing operations) and technological wastes (wastes resulting from maintenance or dismantling) must be safely conditioned into a form that is suitable for storage and, ideally, for final disposal also. Amongst other requirements there is an expectation that the conditioned wastes will be passively safe.
