Drawing on the authors' extensive experience in the processing and disposal of waste, An Introduction to Nuclear Waste Immobilisation, Second Edition examines the gamut of nuclear waste issues from the natural level of radionuclides in the environment to geological disposal of waste-forms and their long-term behavior. It covers all-important aspects of processing and immobilization, including nuclear decay, regulations, new technologies and methods. Significant focus is given to the analysis of the various matrices used, especially cement and glass, with further discussion of other matrices such as bitumen. The final chapter concentrates on the performance assessment of immobilizing materials and safety of disposal, providing a full range of the resources needed to understand and correctly immobilize nuclear waste. This fully revised second edition focuses on core technologies and has an integrated approach to immobilization and hazards. Each chapter focuses on a different matrix used in nuclear waste immobilization: cement, bitumen, glass and new materials. It keeps the most important issues surrounding nuclear waste - such as treatment schemes and technologies and disposal - at the forefront.
