11 to 14 October 2011
1st International Symposium on Cement-based Materials for Nuclear Wastes

The Scope...

Cementation is a widely applied technique for theconditioning of low - and intermediate - level radioactive wastes.
However, specific issues have still tobe addressed, such as the limitation of adverse cement-waste interactions which may affect the quality of the resulting solidified waste form, or the understanding and prediction of long-term properties of the waste packages and cement barriers.
There is also a need for safe processes minimizing the production of secondary wastes.

... and the objective

of the symposium is to promote the exchange of advanced information on the ongoing research and development activities dealing with cementation of nuclear wastes, from elaboration of waste packages to their final disposal.
