Abstract (en)

[origin: DE4427179A1] The invention concerns a method of reprocessing metal parts contaminated with uranium. The metal parts are smelted to form a melt and slag and U235-depleted uranium is mixed with the metal parts, the melt and/or the slag. It is envisaged that the U235-depleted uranium should be added in the form of uranium glass.
