The main problem of low-level radioactive wastes utilization in present technologies is lower waste containing capability and high leaching rates from the solidified body of compound. Also traditional OPC based grouts have low strength gain, especially at initial stages of hardening, caused mostly by influence of boron presence in the waste composition. The paper presents a solution to these problems by using geocement compositions, which provides bonding of radioactive elements not only in physical way, but also chemically by involving of elements into the new formations of cement stone. It has been show results of grout mix design of compositions with radioactive waste (RAW) content up to 20% by mass (in dry salts). The compositions under study met all the requirements for compressive strength (over 10MPa) and also shows very low leaching rates (leaching of Cs at 42 days of test 10-4).
