Ceramics can be particularly radioactive if some compound of uranium (e.g., uranium oxide, sodium urinate) has been used to impart color (e.g., orange-red, green, yellow, black) to the glaze. It is widely known that uranium was used in the glaze of orange-red Fiesta dinnerware, but uranium glazes have also been used other types of ceramics.

Everyday low prices and free delivery on eligible orders. Rutgers researcher Ashutosh Goel is working on new methods to immobilize radioactive waste in glass and ceramics.

“Glass is a perfect material for immobilizing the radioactive wastes with excellent chemical durability,” said Goel, an assistant professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering.

Goel is the primary inventor of a new method to immobilize radioactive. immobilizing high-level nuclear wastes in stable solid forms for interim storage or disposition in geologic repositories. The immobilization of high-level nuclear wastes has been an active area of research and development for over 50 years.

Hot isostatic pressing (HIP) is a technology with wide applicability in consolidating calcined intermediate-level and high-level nuclear waste, especially with wastes that are not able to be readily processed by vitrification at reasonable waste loadings.

The essential process steps during the HIP cycle will be outlined. We have demonstrated the effective consolidation via Cited by: 9.

Immobilisation of high level toxic wastes by vitrification is a well established process that has been studied extensively over last 40 years. A suitable glass host is used to dissolve the high level nuclear waste to form a glassy (vitreous) homogeneous product that can be cast into suitable forms, including large glass blocks.

Nuclear ceramics, ceramic materials employed in the generation of nuclear power and in the disposal of radioactive nuclear wastes.

In their nuclear-related functions, ceramics are of major importance. Since the beginning of nuclear power generation, oxide ceramics, based on the fissionable metals uranium and plutonium, have been made into highly reliable fuel pellets.

In order to retain radioactive elements in the event of water intrusion into the repository, solid waste forms such as ceramic, cement and glass have been an important area in nuclear research. Although nuclear waste is often stored in a container isolated from the environment, waste containment material still governs the retention of active.

Glass-ceramics, with a specific crystalline phase assembly, can combine the advantages of glass and ceramic and avoid their disadvantages. In this study, both cubic-zirconia and zirconolite-based glass-ceramics were obtained by the crystallization of SiO2–CaO–Al2O3–TiO2–ZrO2–Nd2O3–Na2O glass. Results show that all samples Cited by: 5.

Research is in progress to incorporate nuclear waste in new matrices with high structural stability, resistance to thermal shock, and high chemical durability.

Interactions with water are important for materials used as a containment matrix for the radio nuclides. It is indispensable to improve their chemical durability to limit the possible release of radioactive chemical species, if the Cited by: 2.

Ceramic waste forms have the highest chemical durability and radiation resistance, and are recommended for HLW and actinide (ACT) immobilization. Most radiation-resistant materials are based on phases with a fluorite-related structure (cubic zirconia-based solid solutions, pyrochlore, zirconolite, murataite).Composed from two symposia conducted at the Annual Meeting of The American Ceramic Society, this new volume details the advances in the state of knowledge in nuclear and waste materials science and technology.
