This paper reviews the numerous solidification systems and related matrix materials that are presently being offered, or proposed, to the commercial nuclear power industry. Included, where possible, is the nature of how these materials and/or systems are affected by the physical, chemical, and radiolytic characteristics of the treated radioactive waste materials. Key features of the equipment used in individual solidification processes are discussed in order to clarify the relative utility of these processes for either power plant or fuel cycle application.
