Publisher Summary This chapter discusses the immobilization of the radioactive waste. Immobilization reduces the potential for migration or dispersion of contaminants including radionuclides. It is defined as the conversion of a waste into a waste form by solidification, embedding, or encapsulation.

The aim of this report is to review and evaluate the accumulated experience in the use of bituminization techniques for the immobilization of radioactive wastes, including the description of incidents which have happened at bituminization facilities, and to give an assessment on the role of bituminization processes in the strategy for radioactive waste management.

In general, therefore, in France, liquid or solid wastes containing long half-life radionuclides (such as actinides and certain fission products) are bituminized, while wastes containing medium half-life radionuclides (such as in reactor wastes) are stored in Author: J.

Jantzen, William E. Lee, Michael I. Ojovan. Radioactive wastes are the wastes emanating from a nuclear power plant or medical laboratory. They contain the radioactive materials that are hazardous to most forms of life and the environment.

The wastes decay over the course of time, so they would be confined to a safe place until the time they lose their radioactivity and no longer pose a.
