Treatment and conditioning are used to convert radioactive, mixed, and hazardous wastes from various waste processing or used nuclear fuel reprocessing activities into inert waste forms for transportation, storage, and final disposal. The treated and conditioned wastes must ultimately be disposed of in a suitable disposal facility. Multiple disposal options are currently being considered for the most highly radioactive wastes, including geologic repositories and deep borehole disposal. This session discusses advances made in waste form development, reprocessing facility off-gas capture technologies, and disposal facility design and optimization.
