Abstract

This workshop is the third in a series of International Workshop on Mechanisms and Modelling of Waste/Cement Interactions. The focus of the workshop is on the chemical understanding and the thermodynamic/kinetic modelling of the processes responsible for the stabilization of hazardous and nuclear wastes in cementitious systems. The workshop is centered on three central themes: (1) Mechanisms and modeling of cement systems: chemistry and microstructure with a focus on the kinetics and thermodynamics of cement systems, and nano-scale and molecular modelling; (2) Mechanisms and modeling of waste-cement or interface interactions with a focus on sorption of contaminants on cementitious materials, effects of organics, effects of interfaces with waste forms and other engineered or natural materials or water compositions; (3) Advancement in modelling coupled transport and geochemical alterations in cement systems covering a wide range of spatial and temporal scales relevant for waste/cement interactions. The workshop also aims at bridging different research communities such as cement chemistry, nuclear waste and non-radioactive hazardous waste from different fields of interest. It wants to be a forum for both internationally recognized experts in these domains and young or new researchers.
