Conditioning Technology for Radioactive Solid Wastes

This process is designed to stabilize, by means of mortar solidification, various radioactive solid wastes from nuclear power plants, reprocessing plants and other nuclear facilities, such as radioactive metals, steel materials, insulation materials, concrete, and HEPA (High Efficiency Particulate Air) filters. In the conditioning operation, a special high-fluidity mortar is poured into a container holding radioactive solid wastes. The mortar enters into even fine gaps in and between the solid waste items, and a very stable solidified product is obtained.
