In the nuclear energy program of several countries, re-processed reactor waste is to be dissolved in glass for subsequent storage in geological burial sites (see e.g. 1). Waste form glasses must meet the demands of low viscosity liquid processing at relatively low temperatures; consideration has therefore mainly been given to alkali borosilicate (ABS) glasses. The waste containing processed glass is to satisfy the requirement of high corrosion resistance (low leachability) in interaction with water and with various components of the storage system.
