Active since September 2000, GSI has developed and patented several innovative nuclear waste treatment processes. The novel GSI-2000 nuclear waste immobilization process series offers improved waste loadings and can be deployed in active waste treatment facilities. Addressing the growing needs of the nuclear power industry for the treatment of both ongoing waste and of the large stockpiles of untreated nuclear waste, GSI-2000 can potentially generate multi-billion dollar cost savings, a significant reduction in treated waste volume and a shortening of timetables for stockpiles treatment.
GSI also offers two other nuclear waste immobilization technologies, Mineral Encapsulation and Solid Waste Ceramic Immobilization.
