As a rule, radioactive waste becomes suitable for ultimate disposal by embedding in a matrix. The stability of the solidification product is adjusted to the requirements of the type of waste, for instance, Measure of how nocuous a radionuclide is to health. The type..., The spontaneous conversion of a nuclide into another nuclide... heat, The period during which half of the nuclei decay in a quanti... and others. Solidification criteria are:
- mechanical resistance to avoid dispersion,

- thermal conductivity to remove The spontaneous conversion of a nuclide into another nuclide... heat.
Cement mortar is used for low and medium active waste and Type of glass with high resistance to leaching, suitable to ... is used for high active waste as a solidification material.
