Radioactive wastes have become an important problem of our time. At the dawn of nuclear power engineering very few people pondered over the necessity of spent material storage, while today this task is extremely important. Therefore, the pressing need arises for developing a process to convert the radioactive wastes into inert materials, which will not be able to interact with the environment.

Key words: nuclear wastes, borosilicate glass, radio nuclides, vitrification of liquid radioactive wastes
