The U.S. Bureau of Mines successfully melted soil and mixtures of soil and simulated, thermally oxidized transuramic radionuclide-contaminated wastes from the Subsurface Disposal Area of the Radiation Waste Management Complex at the Idaho National Engineering Laboratory. The waste mixtures contained about 0.5 pct cerium oxide as a surrogate for transuranic radionuclide elements, and two of the mixtures contained additions of titanium and zirconium oxides to produce tailored glass-ceramic final… CONTINUE READING
