Plasma melting treatment of low level radioactive waste

Nakashio, Nobuyuki; Nakashima, Mikio

Melting treatment of low-level radioactive wastes (LLW) is considered to be a promising technology for the preparation of a stable solid that will be disposed of in near surface repositories. This is because of large reduction of waste volume and production of a stable homogeneous solidified product. In the Japan Atomic Energy Research Institute (JAERI), the construction of the Waste Volume Reduction Facilities (WVRF) has been in progress since 1999. In advance of operation of the WVRF, we have been conducting melting tests of non-metallic solid wastes with the aim of establishing the optimum melting condition for preparation of a stable solid that is suitable for disposal. We have reviewed a part of the melting test conducted in our program.
