Kurion Signs New Licensing Agreement with ISV Japan to Expand Applications for GeoMelt Vitrification Across Japan

GeoMelt technologies use electric current to convert nuclear and hazardous waste into a leach-resistant glass that is ten times stronger than concrete. It is designed to treat a variety of solid wastes, such as contaminated soil, asbestos and debris. GeoMelt has been in commercial use since the 1990s and has successfully treated over 26,000 tons of waste in Japan, the U.S., UK and Australia.
