Abstract

The experimental programme on radionuclide behaviour has included (a) the influence of silica colloids on the nature and sorption properties of actinide solutions, (b) the properties of Np and Tc leached from simulated HLW, and (c) the behaviour in the presence of various geological media of leachates arising from ILW encapsulated in concrete. Particulate activity produced during the leaching of HLW appears to originate from the fragmentation of the leached surface layer.
