Thermal treatment for radioactive waste minimization and hazard reduction


Project summary

THERAMIN aims to identify which wastes could benefit from a thermal treatment, which processes are under development in participating countries, and how these can be combined to deliver a wide range of benefits.

THERAMIN is being carried out by a consortium of 12 partners representing a European-wide community of experts on thermal treatment technologies and radioactive waste management and disposal. The project includes an advisory group of waste producers and management organisations to provide an end user view. 



This project has received funding from the Euratom research and training programme 2014-2018 under grant agreement No 755480.

One example pilot plant.
A variety of vitrified simulant PCM drum mock ups (a) PVC waste, (b) metal waste, (c) masonry waste, and (d) mixed waste, the glass (G) and crystalline (C) components of the slag fraction, and metallic fraction (M) are labelled.
