Research progress is reported in the waste resources utilization program and the separation technology and source development program. Included in the waste resources program are studies on microbiology, physical-chemical properties of sludge, liquid sludge treatment, dry sludge treatment, cost/benefit analysis, agronomy, and nutritive value. Research in the separation technology and source development program centered on neutron activation of sewage sludge during thermoradiation treatment. Both theoretical and applied studies indicated that the neutron flux required for activation of the sludge is many orders of magnitude greater than any neutron flux expected from a source produced from light water reactor high-level waste.
