Proceedings of a symposium jointly organized with OECD/NEA, Sorrento, Italy, 21-25 March 1988. The contents of the pro- ceedings represent a wide spectrum of topics and should provide an understanding of the issue of beyond the design basis accidents, quite frequently called 'severe accidents'. The papers give an overview of different national approaches, with the overall emphasis on preventive, mitigative and accident management measures. The most important outcome of the symposium was a clear awareness of accident management questions which were among the most controversial issues discussed.
The aim of this report is to review and evaluate the accumulated experience in the use of bituminization techniques for the immobilization of radioactive wastes, including the description of incidents which have happened at bituminization facilities, and to give an assessment on the role of bituminization processes in the strategy for radioactive waste management.
The fission product nuclides generated during the irradiation of reactor fuel include several useful materials, among them precious metals of the platinum group (ruthenium, rhodium and palladium) which are of great commercial importance, occur rarely in nature and are highly valuable. This report is intended mainly to provide a basis for further consideration of the options for platinum group metal recovery from high level radioactive wastes, and for the formulation of appropriate strategies.
