The CHANCE project aims to address the characterization of conditioned radioactive waste. The characterization of fully or partly conditioned radioactive waste is a specific issue because unlike for raw waste, its characterization is complicated by the need for non-destructive techniques and methodologies. There are different and varying reasons for this: 1) conditioned waste may no longer be in its initial form (e.g., due to incineration); 2) conditioned waste is typically embedded or surrounded by a matrix; and 3) conditioned waste may contain wastes that come from different primary sources and therefore the radiological spectrum might become more complex. Characterization issues within CHANCE encompass both physico-chemical characterization and radiological characterization.
