Scope More than half a century has been spent developing nuclear infrastructure for defense, energy, and other applications throughout the world. The scale of these activities has, and will continue to result in a significant quantity of radioactive waste. Responsible environmental stewardship requires treatment and stabilization of these radioactive wastes. This symposium will address contemporary immobilization technologies as well as challenges to develop waste forms and treatment strategies for the future. Progress and prospects in glass and cementitious waste forms as well as treatment and capture of secondary waste streams including process off-gas and liquid effluent will be discussed. Additionally, the symposium will focus on recent advances made in characterization techniques, synthesis methods, and modeling strategies of waste form development including progress made towards assessing and predicting the durability of waste forms on geological timescales. Papers are solicited on a wide variety of topics related to materials aspects in nuclear waste management using experiment, theory, and simulation. This symposium is endorsed by the ACerS Nuclear and Environmental Technology Division.
