Material Scientists at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory are using electron microscopy images of total carbon dioxide (TcO2) crystals on the surface of Trevorite, an iron-nickel spinel considered for the immobilization of technetium, in an effort to develop innovative new nuclear waste forms. The disposal of technetium from Hanford tank waste sludge is an on-going problem. Technetium (Tc) has a very low solubility in current glass formulations, hence the search is on for new methods of Tc immobilization.
