Abstract  

The radioactive boric acid wastes generated from the nuclear power plants have been solidified with cement. One of the properties required for solidified radioactive wastes is resistance to leaching. The leachability of137Cs from solidified waste specimens prepared by various formulation has been studied according to the proposed ANS 16.1 Standard Leach Test. For the evaluation of radiological safety in the solidified radioactive waste disposal, the leachability indices have been determined from the leaching test data. The results have turned out to be 5.97–7.60, depending on formulation and solidifying matrix.
