 OK who ever wrote this article obviously has no clue as to what is Class A, B, And C waste.  Half-life has nothing to do with the classification. The waste is characterized by where it originated.  H-3 and C-14 will still have plenty of activity left after 100 years.  If done properly this idea may not be entirely without merit.  While at the Texas BRC I oversaw a soil mixing project that had a lot of promise for releasing former uranium in-situ mining operations.  The theory was sound but unfortunately the operators execution made a mess of things.
