In-Can vitrification of ash


The In-Can Melter is a metallic crucible heated in a refractory furnace using electrical resistors allowing in-container vitrification. The In-Can Melter trial aims to demonstrate the feasibility of the confinement in a glassy matrix of ash coming from existing incineration processes. The ash was pelletized to allow its introduction into the can without dust emissions and then is incorporated in a 50 wt.% waste loading confinement matrix. The full-scale trial was preceded by laboratory- and bench-scale tests.The microstructure and chemical durability of the wasteform were characterised.
