Results from studies of the removal from storage and solidification of low- and intermediate-level liquid radioactive waste in inorganic binders (cementation) are presented. Cavitation technology for recycling radiochemical wastes from nuclear power plant decommissioning increases the extraction throughput and strength of the cement compound.
