  • EXPLOITATION OF THE FLK-60 SLAGGING INCINERATOR FOR DIFFERENT ALPHA WASTE STREAMS AND STUDY OF THE FEASIBILITY OF MEDIUM LEVEL ALPHA - BETA - GAMMA WASTE INCINERATION IN FLK-60

Abstract

The FLK-60 high temperature slagging incinerator and its peripherals were developed by SCK/CEN with the help of the Commission of the European Communities in the framework of contract no. EUR-017-76-7 WAS-B. This second contract, which covered the period between October 1980 and December 1982, aimed at gaining exploitation experience by running the FLK-60 installation with beta - gamma radioactive waste in semi-industrial conditions. At the end of those 27 months, the system was ready for exploitation in alpha conditions with plutonium containing materials. This report describes the various plant parameters during the 25 runs carried out in the framework of this contract and the results of characterization tests carried out on the final product and the secondary waste streams. In the meantime, typical operation balances are computed.
