Product Description

From the Back Cover

As the re-emergence of nuclear power as an acceptable energy source on an international basis continues, the need for safe and reliable ways to dispose of radioactive waste becomes ever more critical. The ultimate goal for designing a predisposal waste-management system depends on producing waste containers suitable for storage, transportation and permanent disposal. Cement-Based Materials for Nuclear-Waste Storage provides a roadmap for the use of cementation as an applied technique for the treatment of low- and intermediate-level radioactive wastes.Coverage includes, but is not limited to, a comparison of cementation with other solidification techniques, advantages of calcium-silicate cements over other materials and a discussion of the long-term suitability and safety of waste packages as well as cement barriers. This book also:

  • Discusses the formulation and production of cement waste forms for storing radioactive material
  • Assesses the potential of emerging binders to improve the conditioning of problematic  wastes
  • Covers sophisticated monitoring techniques that can be used to identify leakage of radioactive waste from cement waste packages and barriers

Cement-Based Materials for Nuclear-Waste Storage is an ideal book for researchers and nuclear engineers studying and working on the challenges in radioactive waste disposal and storage.
