    Disposing Radioactive materials

    I hope this inquiry belongs to this forum. In chemical engineering, how could we dispose the radioactive materials safely?

    These materials have long lifespan before their radiation will be completely gone. The storage facilities might have shorter lifespan than the materials they are holding.

    I have found a paper by russians about using catalytic fluidized bed reactor
    in disposing waste from nuclear plants you may find it in Elsevier .it was a proces designed by russians
