HIPed tailored pyrochlore-rich glass-ceramic waste forms for the immobilization of nuclear waste

Conference Paper


Abstract


  • Hot isostatically pressed (HIPed) glass-ceramics for the immobilization of uranium-rich intermediate-level wastes and Hanford K-basin sludges were designed. These were based on pyrochlore-structured Ca1-xU (1+y)Ti2O7 in glass, together with minor crystalline phases. Detailed microstructural, diffraction and spectroscopic characterization of selected glass-ceramic samples has been performed, and chemical durability is adequate, as measured by both MCC- 1 and PCT-B leach tests. �� 2009 Materials Research Society.
