Topics in this session will address new developments and innovative applications for materials and materials processing methods for immobilization of nuclear and hazardous wastes. Progress in the processing and testing of materials for immobilization is critical to the efficient and successful treatment and disposal of nuclear waste around the world.

This session will focus on characterization, testing, and modeling techniques that quantify and allow understanding of waste form behavior. Material forms of interest may include glass, ceramics, glass-ceramics, and other composite matrices.
