The process of incorporation of radioactive wastes into a suitable matrix to form a stable product for long term disposal has been studied. The changes, occuring during the thermal treatment with glassy materials, i.e. drying, transformation processes, sintering, melting, etc. have been followed using emanation (radon) thermal analysis. This method was found useful in solving the problems of process development.
