Description

In nuclear research it is most important to gain efficient solutions in waste management following all terms to content all involved parties. Within the PSI HOTLAB liquid waste treatment facility called "FIXBOX" liquid radioactive waste is conditioned to be submitted to intermediate storage or final disposal as cemented solid drums. Recently, the third generation of the FIXBOX is in its testing phase, relying on the experience of its previous versions and new ambits in nuclear science. Results from the first active tests are presented here.
