The immobilisation of high level waste from nuclear fuel reprocessing by vitrification in borosilicates is a well-established technology, however there are a variety of legacy wastes at sites such as Sellafield that cannot be immobilised in the existing glass compositions. In addition vitrification is being increasingly looked at for the vitrification of toxic and hazardous wastes. I will review some of our work in this area and will draw out lessons both for the vitrification of “difficult” elements and for the wider application of waste vitrification.
