Professor Goel of the MSE faculty has been awarded a $800,000 grant over 3 years and an additional $150,000 grant for 1 year from the U.S. Department of Energy to work towards developing glasses and ceramics for radioactive waste immobilization. The $800,000 grant has been awarded in the framework of Nuclear Energy University Program (NEUP) to develop glass-bonded ceramic waste forms for immobilization of iodine-129 and mixed halide radioactive wastes. The details about this project can be obtained from www.neup.gov.
