IMMOBILIZATION OF NUCLEAR GRADE ION RESINS IN ALKALI-ACTIVATED MATERIALS
The main scientific objectives of this project are the immobilization of an organic solid residue (RSO), nuclear grade ion exchange resin in alkali activated materials, the study of the durability in aggressive environments and the leaching of the final product with the immobilized residue. The technological objective is to use these new geopolymers as an encapsulating matrix for radioactive waste whose storage is managed by ENRESA. These geopolymers can also be used to immobilize other types of radioactive waste generated nationally and internationally. A similar study is carried out with traditional Portland cement-based systems for the immobilization of RSO for comparative purposes.
