National Nuclear Laboratory and Kurion Complete Initial Commissioning of GeoMelt Vitrification System Prior to Deployment at NNL’s Central Laboratory, Sellafield

National Nuclear Laboratory (NNL) and Kurion announced a key milestone in their collaboration to establish a full-scale, GeoMelt In-Container Vitrification (ICV) plant at NNL’s Central Laboratory on the Sellafield site in 2016. The team successfully completed the non-radioactive testing phase of its commissioning program, capping it off with a paid demonstration for the UK Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) on simulated Sellafield waste. The system will now be disassembled and moved to the Central Laboratory for final commissioning followed by commercial operation. NNL and Kurion intend to increase the capacity of the system in 2016. The UK Radioactive Waste Inventory lists over 300,000 tonnes of intermediate-level waste and low-level waste that could be suitable for thermal treatment with GeoMelt. It is uniquely capable of processing varied forms of waste simultaneously, enabling it to turn liabilities, such as contaminated soils and inorganic ion exchange media, into assets as glass formers. GeoMelt is also uniquely suited for the treatment of radioactive contaminated asbestos, which is present at many of the plants undergoing decommissioning. The GeoMelt system at NNL was designed so that it can accommodate both small test melts and full-scale melts in 3 m3 disposal containers. This allows for a uniquely flexible platform to demonstrate, test and process radioactively contaminated and other hazardous waste streams using vitrification. In 2016 Kurion and NNL plan to increase the total throughput of the system to a maximum annualized processing capacity of over 200 tonnes and will evaluate the installation of additional systems. In contrast to other processes, GeoMelt reduces the volume of waste and creates a superior, leach-resistant waste form that decreases packaging, storage, handling, transportation and disposal costs. As a result, it lowers the lifecycle costs for managing and dispositioning waste streams.
