Present plans being considered for Three Mile Island (TMI) wastes involve radionuclide adsorption on zeolites, transportation, and possible melting with pit into glass. Several zeolites were treated with a simulated TMI waste and directly sintered at 1000°C to fix the adsorbed ions. The Cs leach rates of the sintered products are similar to those of borosilicate glasses. Thus, simple sintering (on‐site) of zeolites may be a cost‐effective and less cumbersome alternative for such waste solidification.
