The JEB Tailings Management Facility (TMF) is central to reducing the environmental impact of the McClean Lake uranium mill facility that is operated by AREVA Resources Canada. This facility has been designed around the ...
An investigation of the thermal stability of NdxYyZr1 x yO2 d inert matrix fuel materials
An important step in achieving a closed uranium fuel cycle is to develop new inert matrix fuel (IMF) materials for use in the burn-up of transuranic species (TRU; i.e., Pu, Np, Am, Cm). Cubic fluorite zirconia (ZrO2) has ...
Investigation of the stability of glass-ceramic composites containing CeTi2O6 and CaZrTi2O7 after ion implantation
Glass-ceramic composite materials have been investigated for nuclear waste sequestration applications due to their ability to incorporate large amounts of radioactive waste elements. A key property that needs to be understood ...
