Symposium Information

Organized by

CEA, French Commission for Atomic and Alternative Energies,
and SFEN, French Nuclear Energy Society

The symposium

will include 3 days of conference talks and posters, and one day dedicated to technologies and visits of nuclear facilities in Marcoule, a research center from the Atomic Energy and Alternative Energy Commission. English is the working language of the symposium for opening speeches, oral presentations and visits.

The Scope...

Cementation is a widely applied technique for the conditioning of low - and intermediate - level radioactive wastes. 
 However, specific issues have still to be 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.
