It addresses a wide range of issues, commencing with introductory chapters which present critical background information.
Waste Immobilization in Glass and Ceramic Based Hosts: Radioactive, Toxic and Hazardous Wastes
These outline environmental aspects and provide information relating to generic sources and categories of wastes, potential disposal options, and where lessons can be learnt from nature and from a number of incidents and accidents that have occurred over the years. In the following chapters, immobilization of High Level Waste and special categories of Intermediate Level Waste are covered in depth.
These provide details of specific waste systems, in addition to more conventional wastes from spent fuel reprocessing and defence operations. Vitrification techniques, the types of glasses employed or proposed as wasteforms, glass-ceramic based hosts, glass-encapsulated ceramic wasteforms, and relevant ceramic phases are discussed.
The characterization of radioactive wasteforms, a critical issue with significant implications for assessing their very long-term stability, is also addressed. Future prospects for radioactive waste immobilization are also outlined with particular reference given to the treatment of new generation wastestreams that will be produced, for example, from the recycling of spent fuel from Generation IV Gen4 nuclear energy systems.

Non-radioactive hazardous and toxic wastes and wasteforms are subsequently reviewed in considerable depth. These wastes are numerous and diverse in nature, ranging from municipal incinerator ashes to waste asbestos products, currently creating serious environmental challenges. The influence of microbial activity on wasteform stability, both radioactive and non-radioactive is reviewed.

The book continues with chapters offering comparisons between non-radioactive and hazardous waste immobilization and suggests where lessons learnt by the nuclear industries over many years may be usefully applied to the immobilization of non-radioactive hazardous waste systems. In conclusion, an outlook for the future is provided.
