AIP has been issued a patent for the application of HIP technology to nuclear waste. Details of the patent are available on the USPTO website. AIP is partnered with the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organization for the development and use of HIP as a method to encapsulate nuclear waste and in particular high level materials, and has more patents pending. Many of these revolve around the need for an ultra safe pressure containment as well as remote operation requirements. Visit http://www.synrocansto.com/ for more information.
