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 facility undefined, and scientific and medical study associations, providing a number of 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.
