Nuclear waste is divided into low, medium, and high‐level waste by the amount of radiological character it contains. Low and Intermediate Level Nuclear waste is the radioactive waste resulting from nuclear facility consumables, clothing, laboratory equipment etc. This waste can adversely affect human health and the environment and therefore must be handled appropriately. Typically, the waste is kept underwater for 3-5 years until the radiation decays to levels that can be shielded by concrete in large storage casks, where it can be held for thousands of years. A challenge for the nuclear industry is the cost associated with conditioning, packaging and storage of these heterogeneous wastes. Therefore, a solution that can decrease the volume of nuclear waste, and reduce the amount of storage required, is considered a commercially advantageous option.

The effluents that accrue in the cleaning process of silo vehicles and containers for transportation of raw materials for the chemical industry, are highly complex and constantly changing in the composition of wastewater. Flocculation as the prior art of treatment for chemical waste water can not remove many of the completely dissolved invisible substances. Thus, the residual stresses are evident despite high claritv of the `Treated effluent` is often well above the levels witch are applicable for wastewater in domestic environments.
