The main goal of this project is to improve the security of society through removing the chemical and radiological hazards associated with waste materials. Specifically, alkali-activated materials (AAMs) based on locally available industrial by-products in Serbia, such as fly ash from coal-fired thermal power plants or blast furnace slag from pig iron production will be used for immobilization of hazardous (toxic and/or radioactive) wastes. The defence against Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear (CBRN) Agents, preventing risks, emerging technologies, and enhancement of cooperation are the major SPS Key Priorities addressed by this project. When proved to be feasible, the developed technology for immobilization of hazardous waste with AAMs will be tested in the Waste Processing Facility within the Public Company “Nuclear Facilities of Serbia. PARTNERS: The project is realized in collaboration between the University of Sheffield (UK) and Serbian partners: Institute for Multidisciplinary Research (the University of Belgrade), Faculty of Civil Engineering (the University of Belgrade), Institute of General and Physical Chemistry (Belgrade), and Public Company “Nuclear Facilities of Serbia“ (Vinča, Belgrade).
