The problem of disposing of radioactive effluents is growing bigger as more nuclear plants are built and industry generally makes increasing use of radioactive chemicals in research. Here the author attempts to assess the value of various corrosion‐resistant materials of construction for effluent systems designed to handle radioactive liquids. He concentrates on non‐metallic materials such as rubbers, plastics and concrete and describes a number of special cements.
