In this study, practicability of the high-volume reduction and stable immobilization technique of radioactive cesium (Cs) waste was verified. During this process, Cs was desorbed from contaminated soil by high-speed ion exchange with metal ion-containing subcritical water such as an alkaline-earth. The desorbed Cs was adsorbed and vitrified. In this presentation, we report the tests results such as adsorption separation using iron ferrocyanide-based adsorbent and vitrification of Cs in sub-critical treated water, and vitrification of Cs into high-silica glass containing solid acid.
