Radioactive waste management experience of Moscow SIA 'Radon'
Vitrification and cementation are used for conditioning liquid radioactive waste (LRW) at SIA 'Radon'. More than 2000 m³ of LRW are treated on the vitrification plant and 100,000 m³ of LRW on cementation plants. For clearing LRW are used the filtration, ultra filtration, reverse osmosis, selective sorption, ion exchange, and oxidation. For treatment NPP bottom concentrates the technology of selective sorption have been developed. The technology has passed approbation on pilot plants of different NPP. For treatment of solid radioactive waste the incineration, plasma incineration, compaction with effort of 100 and 1500 tons are used. On plants more than 50,000 m³ have been treated.
