Library REBIND in hardcover with original paperback front and back covers bound in,library stamps/marks/labels/slip/pocket, otherwise light wear. Solid hardcover. ; Proceedings of a seminar jointly organised by the Commission of the European Communities, Directorate-General for Science, Research and Development and the Kernforschungsanlage Jülich GmbH, in the framework of the R & D programme on radioactive waste management and disposal, held in KFA Jülich, Federal Republic of Germany, 10-11 December 1985. "The purpose of the Seminar was to provide an international interdisciplinary forum for in-depth discussion of the pros and cons of a denitration step by chemical means in the course of solidification of MAW (medium active waste) and HAW (highly active wste), prior to feeding the caliner or melter. In particular, differences in the volatility of some components and aerosol formation during the vitrification step are of interest. Chemical rather than thermal denitration may have particular merits which could simplify off-gas purification. A reduction in the salt burden of waste solutions, leading to a reduction in the volume of solid waste, may also be achieved." - Introduction. ; EUR 10 650; Radioactive Waste Management Series; Ex-Library; viii, 180 pages.
