From the Back Cover:

The problem of what to do with waste materials both radioactiveand, more recently, non-radioactive, is an increasingly importantenvironmental and political issue. Radioactive waste managementpractices vary worldwide but currently the most common method is toturn highly radioactive waste into a vitrified product, in order torender it passively safe before disposal. With mounting pressure onland-fill sites, and increased environmental concern, the issue oftoxic and hazardous waste management must also be properlyaddressed.

This book brings together all aspects of waste immobilization,draws comparisons between the different types of wastes andtreatments, and outlines where lessons learnt by the nuclearindustry may be usefully applied in the treatment ofnon-radioactive wastes. A wide range of topics is covered,including vitrification techniques, ceramic and glass-ceramicwasteforms, novel hosts, toxic and hazardous wastes, influence ofmicrobial activity, and the treatment of new generationwastestreams. Waste Immobilization in Glass and Ceramic BasedHosts provides an up-to-date reference source at this criticaltime, when the need for low carbon energy sources has broughtnuclear power back to the forefront, and non-radioactive toxic andhazardous wastes pose an increasing threat to the environment.

About the Author:

Ian Donald, Atomic Weapons Establishment (AWE), UK. Ian Donald has specialised in various areas of glass technology for over 30 years. After receiving a PhD from the University of Leeds? in 1973 he continued with postdoctoral studies at the University of Warwick. This was followed by research on metallic glasses at the University of Sheffield.?Subsequently, Dr. Donald joined the Atomic Weapons Research Establishment (later to become the Atomic Weapons Establishment,?ARE) in 1981. He was promoted to the grade of Distinguished Scientist in 2002, and was awarded the John Challens Medal for Lifetime Achievement by AWE in 2006. His work at AWE?has included a diverse range of topics and has covered speculative research on a variety of glass, ceramic and glass-ceramic materials, as well as component development programmes including the research and development of chemically strengthened glasses with frangible (command-break) properties, glass-coated microwire, glass- and glass-ceramic-to-metal seal devices and coatings, glass and glass-ceramic matrix composites and, over the last 14 years, glasses and ceramics as hosts for immobilizing radioactive wastes. Over this period, Dr Donald has presented many papers at international conferences on waste-related topics.

Dr Donald is an elected member of national and international technical committees on glass including the Basic Science and Technology Committee of the Society of Glass Technology together with the Committee on Nucleation, Crystallization and Glass-Ceramics of the International Commission on Glass, representing the UK. He is also a Fellow of both the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining and the Society of Glass Technology, is an Associate Member of the Institute of Physics, has served time as a Visiting Professor at the University of Reading, is author or co-author of over 100 technical publications in the open literature, including a book written at the invitation of the Society of Glass Technology on Glass-to-Metal Seals, and is a member of the EPSRC Peer Review College.
