High level liquid waste (HLLW) is generated as a by product of spent nuclear fuel reprocessing. Almost 2 billion curies of high level waste (HLW) have been generated in three generations of reprocessing plants at the U.K.’s Sellafield site. The waste management strategy is based upon minimizing the final volume of the HLLW arising by retaining an acidic flowsheet, segregating the less active salt-containing streams where possible, and only neutralizing the very low activity wastes. The treated… Expand
