Corrosion behavior of simulated high-level waste glass in the presence of calcium ion or metallic iron

Maeda, Toshikatsu; Watanabe, Koichi; Omori, Hiroyuki*; Sakamaki, Keiko ; Inagaki, Yaohiro*; Idemitsu, Kazuya*

Static leach tests were conducted for simulated HLW glass in CaCl$$_{2}$$/Ca(OH)$$_{2}$$ solutions to investigate the corrosion behavior of HLW glass under calcium-rich environments induced by cement based materials in geological repositories. Another series of leach tests were conducted in deionized water in the presence of iron to investigate the effects of iron over-pack on the glass corrosion. In Ca solutions, corrosion of the glass was inhibited during the test period compared to that in deionized water, while the corrosion was enhanced at the presence of iron. The enhancement of the glass corrosion was assumed to be accompanied with transformation of silica, a glass network former, into iron silicates.
