As part of ongoing research and development of nuclear waste disposal techniques suitable for the pyrochemical processing system [1], iron-phosphate glass was examined as an alternative waste form for high level waste generated from the electro-refining process [2]. To enhance the waste element content in the glass matrix and improve the durability of the waste form, optimization experiments of the glass composition were performed, and the effects of other additional transition metal oxides were determined. From the surface analysis of iron phosphate glass, a leaching mechanism was assumed for various elements contained in the glass matrix. We have selected suitable a glass composition for the treatment of radioactive waste generated from the spent electrolytes of pyrochemical processing.
