Future waste

At the turn of the twenty-first century, the interest in sources of clean energy has led to increased interest in advanced nuclear power production, often referred to as the ‘nuclear renaissance.’ The development of advanced waste forms is a necessary component of this new strategy. Therefore, advanced nuclear waste forms are being designed for robust disposal strate­gies. Implicit in the ceramics and glass ceramic waste form development is the idea of using additives to ‘tailor’ the waste chemically so that the desired host radionuclide phases are produced after consolidation. Implicit in the cements and encapsulant waste forms is to ‘design’ the encapsulant to retain radioactive and hazardous constituents while being effective in adverse environments.
