Abstract

High level radioactive wastes generated during the reprocessing of defense-related nuclear fuels are presently stored as calcined solids at the Idaho Chemical Processing Plant (ICPP). This method of handling nuclear waste has proved to be both safe and cost effective. However, for disposal, the waste form and/or disposal location may need to be altered.
