    Research outputpeer-review


    The Argentinian Commission for Nuclear Energy, CNEA (Bueones Aires), asked for advice on the planned bituminisation of low level and medium level liquid and solid radioactive waste from the operation of the nuclear power plants Atucha I and Atucha II. This expert's report gives some findings from the visit to CNEA and the Atucha II nuclear power plant, and summarises the most important aspects regarding the bituminisation of this radioactive waste (type of bitumen, characterisation of primary waste streams and bituminised waste product, bituminisation of solid waste).
