14 - Gelation and other innovative conversion processes for aqueous-based reprocessing and recycling of spent nuclear fuels

This chapter summarizes different innovative fuel production techniques using the product streams from an aqueous reprocessing route with a focus on the well-known sol-gel conversion method. There is also reference to additional steps, post sol-gel conversion; for example, in order to load the sample matrix with minor actinides or to introduce a barrier for fission products.
