Handbook of Advanced Radioactive Waste Conditioning Technologies (Woodhead Publishing Series in Energy)

Radioactive wastes are generated from quite a lot of resources, together with the ability undefined, and scientific and clinical learn associations, offering a number demanding situations in facing a various set of radionuclides of various concentrations. Conditioning applied sciences are crucial for the encapsulation and immobilization of those radioactive wastes, forming the preliminary engineered barrier required for his or her transportation, garage and disposal.

In times which increasingly value resource efficiency, waste has become a luxury. DEFRA, the Department of Environment, Food and Rural Affairs in the UK, has estimated that businesses could save up to £23 billion by re-using resources more efficiently (DEFRA, 2012). In the EU, Council Directive 99/31/EC, better known as the Landfill Directive, will drastically reduce the amount of landfill space available as the amount of biodegradable waste sent to landfill in member countries by 2016 will have to reach 35% of the 1995 level.

Phase II biorefineries differ from phase I biorefineries by the number of outputs they can produce. A typical example of a phase II biorefinery is the production of starch, ethanol and lactic acid together with high fructose syrup, corn syrup, corn oil and corn meal from corn wet mil operations (EPA, 2011). , 2009). , supercritical CO2 extraction followed by biological transformation), in comparison to phase I and II biorefineries. They also allow for a higher number of valorized outputs since several constituents of the feedstock used can be treated separately.

Early research on renewable resources focused heavily on crops such as rapeseed, corn or sugar cane. However, the controversial competition between food and non-food uses of biomass had an negative effect on crop prices as well as on press feedback concerning biofuels (OECD, 2008). Other sources of biomass are now studied and waste is increasingly considered as another renewable feedstock for the production of bioderived chemicals, materials and fuels. In times which increasingly value resource efficiency, waste has become a luxury.
