Title: Single Pass Flow-Through (SPFT) Test Results of Fluidized Bed Steam Reforming (FBSR) Waste Forms used for LAW Immobilization - 12252

Abstract

Several supplemental technologies for treating and immobilizing Hanford low activity waste (LAW) are being evaluated. One such immobilization technology being considered is the Fluidized Bed Steam Reforming (FBSR) product, which is granular and will be monolithed into a final waste form. The granular component is composed of insoluble sodium aluminosilicate (NAS) feldspathoid minerals. Production of the FBSR mineral product has been demonstrated at the industrial, engineering, and laboratory scales. Single-Pass Flow-Through (SPFT) tests at various flow rates have been conducted with the granular products fabricated using the engineering- and laboratory-scale methods. Results show that the forward dissolution rate for the engineering-scale mineral product is 0.6 (±0.2)x10{sup -3} g/m{sup 2}d while the forward dissolution rate for the laboratory-scale mineral product is 1.3 (±0.5)x10{sup -3} g/m{sup 2}d.
