STATUS OF AND SUGGESTED DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM FOR MERCHANT SHIP REACTOR WASTE DISPOSAL

The type of wastes to be considered in nuclear merchant ships (demineralizer resin, liquid, and radioactive gas) are discussed and recommendations for disposal techniques are given. Experimental data concerning the elution effect of sea water on the demineralizer resin are given as well as preliminary information on the leaching effect of sea water on sorbed activity on resin imbedded in Portland cement. It is concluded that corrosion studies of sea water on possible containers would be useful.(Author)
