Vitrification of High-Level Alumina Nuclear Waste

  • J. R. Brotzman
Part of the Advances in Nuclear Science & Technology book series (ANST)


Borophosphate glass compositions have been developed for the vitrification of a high alumina calcined defense waste. The effect of substituting SiO2 and P2O5 for B2O3 on the viscosity and leach resistance was measured. The effect of the alkali to borate ratio and the Li2O:Na2O ratio on the melt viscosity and leach resistance was also measured.
