Incineration technology of plutonium contaminated solid waste generated from MOX fuel fabrication facilities

Shibata, Yuichi 

Plutonium-contaminated solid wastes have been generated during MOX fuel fabrication in the Japan Atomic Energy Agency (JAEA). Chlorine contained solid wastes such as PVC bags and chloroprene rubber gloves have been steadily generated because MOX fuel fabrication equipments are installed in glove boxes. Incinerations of chlorinated wastes cause the problems such as corrosion of the equipments and dust load against the exhaust system. The JAEA had designed and manufactured a new type incineration system for chlorine contained wastes and combustible wastes based on past experience gained by the operation of the Plutonium contaminated Waste Treatment Facility (PWTF) to solve the problems.
