Technical Paper / Tritium Science and Technology - Decontamination and Waste

This paper describes a viable solidification technology to convert the liquid scintillation cocktail into a stable form which minimizes the probability to release tritium in the environment.

This radioactive waste type is generated by the radio-chemical analysis lab of a CANDU nuclear power plant.
