SYNROC: the Australian method for immobilizing high level nuclear waste
Australian Atomic Energy Commission
The purpose of the SYNROC Demonstration Plant Project is to show that SYNROC can be fabricated at or near full-scale on a non-radioactive basis in an engineered plant using process steps and an overall plant concept amenable to redesign for remote operation. Concurrently, operation of the plant will provide data for preliminary estimates of the cost of fabricating radioactive SYNROC. However, there is no commitment to build a radioactive SYNROC plant in Australia.
