Learn about the work PNNL is doing to help solve one of the biggest challenges we face as a country – how do we safely immobilize nuclear waste for future generations? Waste vitrification, the process of turning waste into glass, is the technology selected on the Hanford site to clean up 50 million gallons of legacy waste. Learn how the glass melters work, why glass is a good candidate for waste immobilization, and some of the technical challenges we are tackling.
