The researchers, from the University of Sheffield's Faculty of Engineering, have shown that mixing plutonium-contaminated waste with blast furnace slag and turning it into glass reduces its volume by 85-95 per cent. It also effectively locks in the radioactive plutonium, creating a stable end product. The approach could also be applicable to treating large volume mixed wastes generated during the eventual clean-up of the damaged Fukushima plant. "The overall volume of plutonium...
