Metals and alloys with relatively low melting temperatures such as lead and lead-based alloys are considered in Russia as prospective matrices for encapsulation of spent nuclear fuel in containers in preparation for final disposal in underground repositories. Now lead and leadbased alloys are being used for conditioning spent sealed radioactive sources at radioactive waste disposal facilities.
