Abstract

The storage of fission products solutions generated by the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuels, has been operated until now in stainless steel tanks. This management does not give rise to any danger provided that suitable devices are able to withdraw the released heat and to make harmless possible leakages. Nevertheless the increase of nuclear energy in the world, emphasizes the need to use safer methods. The main one is founded upon the solidification of the radioactive liquids.
