Event Details

Vitrification of high-level liquid waste is the internationally recognized standard to minimize both the environmental impact resulting from waste disposal and the volume of conditioned waste. In France, high-level liquid waste arising from nuclear fuel reprocessing has been successfully vitrified for more than 50 years with three major objectives: durable containment of the long-lived fission products, minimization of the final waste volume, and suitability for an industrial framework. As a result, the Science and Technology Institute for Circular Economy of Low Carbon Energies (CEA-ISEC) has developed a unique level of experience in the field of high level waste vitrification through the design and operation of facilities with very good safety, reliability and product quality. On-going parallel efforts focus on improving the technology (from hot to cold crucible melter) and the associated matrix formulations, with constant emphasis on quality and volume reduction.


This webinar will be provided by Sophie Schuller from CEA (Commissariat à l’Energie Atomique et aux énergies alternatives).
