The vitrified High-Level Radioactive Waste (HLW) disposal was simulated in this study using an International Simple Glass, a simplified version of the French R7T7 reference glass (ISG). Using coupon samples of ISG and powdered Ankerite, a test for nuclear waste form (MCC-1) was assembled for (3-90 days). Ultrapure water was used to set up the systems, which were kept at 90°C with an initial pH of 6.3. Mg-Si precipitation was seen as a chemical effect of Ankerite on the ISG … Continue reading “Corrosion of Glass Used for Radioactive Waste Disposal Influenced by Ankerite”
