Abstract

A review of the waste-disposal research and development carried out in the United States of America is given. The major research effort concerns the conversion of high-level liquid wastes into solids. At Hanford and Oak Ridge low-level wastes are disposed to the ground in pits, cribs and lagoons. Geochemical studies related to waste disposal are conducted at Hanford, Oak Ridge and the University of North Carolina. Experiments with soil columns ate described ; these are more effective for the decontamination of waste streams than either cribs or pits. The most suitable exchange materials for the soil columns are found to be vermiculite supported by rock phosphate and the latter supported by graded gravel. The progress of research work on the possibility of injecting radioactive liquid wastes into porous formations through deep wells and disposing of radioactive wastes in impermeable formations by hydraulic fracturing is outlined.

(author) [French] L'auteur passe en revue les recherches effectuees aux Etats-Unis en matiere d'elimination des dechets radioactifs et les progres accomplis dans ce domaine. En matiere de recherche, on s'attache principalement a la conversion en solides des dechets liquides de haute activite. A Hanford et a Oak Ridge, les dechets de faible activite sont elimines par decharge terrestre dans des coffres, puits et depots lagunaires. Des etudes de geochimie se rapportant a l'elimination des dechets sont en cours a Hanford, a Oak Ridge et l'Universite de Caroline du Nord. Le memoire decrit les experiences faites avec des colonnes ; pour decontaminer les dechets liquides, ces dernieres sont plus efficaces que les coffres ou les puits. Les substances echangeuses d'ions les plus appropriees pour les colonnes sont vermiculite-phosphate naturel-gravier trie. L'auteur expose les progres dea travaux de recherche portant sur la possibilite d'injecter des dechets radioactifs liquides dans des formations poreuses, par decharge dans des puits profonds, et d'evacuer les dechets radioactifs dans des formations impermeables par fissuration des roches sous prossion hydraulique. (author) [Spanish] El autor examina las investigaciones y trabajos realizados en los Estados Unidos en materia de evacuacion de desechos radiactivos. En Hanford y en Oak Ridge los desechos de baja actividad se descargan en pozos, cajas de drenaje y estanques. Las investigaciones se refieren principalmente a la solidificacion de desechos liquidos de elevada actividad. En Hanford, en Oak Ridge y en la Universidad de Carolina del Norte se llevan a cabo estudios geoquimicos sobre la evacuacion de desechos. En el documento se describen experimentos efectuados con columnas de tierra, que son mas eficaces para descontaminar las corrientes de desechos que las cajas de drenaje ol os pozos. Los materiales de intercambio mas apropiados para las columnas de tierra son la vermiculita sobre fosforita, con base de grava graduada. El autor describe los progresos de las investigaciones sobre la posibilidad de inyectar desechos radiactivos liquidos en formaciones porosas a traves de pozos profundos y de evacuar desechos en formaciones impermeables previamente fracturadas por medios hidraulicos. (author) [Russian] Daetsja obzor provodimyh v SShA issledovanij problemy udalenija othodov. Osnovnoe vnimanie v issledovanijah udeljaetsja problemam pererabotki vysokoaktivnyh zhidkih othodov v tverduju massu. V Hjenforde i Okridzhe nizkoaktivnye othody udaljajutsja v zemlju v kolodcy, vyrabotki i laguny. V Hjenforde, Okridzhe i universitete Juzhnoj Karoliny provodjatsja geohimicheskie issledovanija, svjazannye s udaleniem othodov. Opisyvajutsja opyty s pochvennymi kolonkami; oni javljajutsja bolee jeffektivnymi dlja dezaktivacii zhidkih othodov, chem vyrabotki i kolodcy. Naibolee podhodjashhimi porodami dlja pochvennyh kolonok javljajutsja vermikulit, lezhashhij na tverdyh fosfatah, kotorye, v svoju ochered', lezhat na krupnozernostom gravii. Izlagaetsja hod issledovatel'skoj raboty, imejushhej cel'ju izuchenie vozmozhnosti vpryskivanija radioaktivnyh zhidkih othodov v poristye porody cherez glubokie kolodcy i zahoronenija radioaktivnyh othodov v nepronicaemyh porodah gidravlicheskim putem.
