             abstract = "In this paper, a review of radioactive wastes treatment using 
                         thermal plasma technology is presented as a treatment method for 
                         radioactive waste management. Virtually all waste streams can be 
                         treated by the thermal plasma technologies, resulting in a 
                         conditioned product, free from organics and liquids, definitely 
                         meeting the acceptance criteria for safe storage and disposal. The 
                         application of the thermal plasma system in the nuclear area is 
                         still one of the current research topics due to the theoretical 
                         and practical complexity of the treatment. This paper discusses 
                         the performance of the thermal plasma systems, addressing the 
                         advantages and limitations of the method.",
