THE ROLE OF COLLOIDS IN NUCLEAR WASTE DISPOSAL
Aspects of formation and characterization of a radioactive colloidal fraction released by the waste form or produced by association with microcolloids naturally existing in ground water or produced either by corrosion of container material or by degradation of backfill material are discussed. A filtration model has been developed in order to describe colloidal transport under field conditions. Comparison between data obtained with laboratory column experiments and theoretical evaluations is presented.
