An introduction to nuclear waste immobilisation

Author: Michael I Ojovan; W E Lee
Publisher: Amsterdam ; Boston : Elsevier, 2005.
Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 1st edView all editions and formats
Summary:
"This book overviews the various materials in which nuclear wastes are immobilised. The most common and developed matrices: cement, bitumen and glass are explored and shown to be appropriate for the vast majority of nuclear wastes. However, new systems for difficult wastes are also described including matrices based on ceramics, glass composite materials and metals."--Jacket.
