DEVELOPMENT OF A TEST METHOD FOR LEACHING GLASSES IMMERSED IN POROUS MEDIA
In order to evaluate the leaching properties of glass incorporating HLW when it is embedded in wet porous media (clay, sea sediments, backfilling materials) a leaching apparatus has been developed. The apparatus allows to press a cylinder of the porous media against a glass sample. In this way it is possible not only to study the effect of leaching on the glass but also to follow the release of the various elements into the porous media. Preliminary results obtained using Boom clay are presented and discussed.
