Waste Forms Technology and Performance: Interim Report

View Cover




The Waste Forms Technology and Performance study examines requirements for waste form technology and performance in the context of the disposal system in which the waste will be emplaced. The Department of Energy, Office of Environmental Management requested this interim report to provide timely information for fiscal year 2011 technology development planning. The authoring committee has focused this interim report on opportunities associated with selected aspects of three components of its statement of task. These tasks are:

  • The state-of-the-art tests and models of waste forms used to predict their performance for time periods appropriate to their disposal system.
  • Potential modifications of waste form production methods that may lead to more efficient production of waste forms that meet their performance requirements.
  • Potential new waste forms that may offer enhanced performance or lead to more efficient production.

The committee judges that the opportunities identified in this report are sufficiently mature to justify consideration by DOE-EM as it plans its fiscal year 2011 technology development program.
