As a rule, radioactive waste becomes suitable for
ultimate disposal by embedding in a matrix. The stability of the solidification
product is adjusted to the requirements of the type of waste, for instance,
radiotoxicity, decay heat, half-life and others. Solidification criteria
mechanical resistance to avoid dispersion,
radiation protection resistance to avoid radiolysis,
thermal conductivity to remove decay heat.
Cement mortar is used for low and medium active waste and borosilicate
glass is used for high active waste as a solidification material.
