Nuclaw Waste

“The improper mix in the [nuclear waste] barrel, including the wrong sort of kitty litter used to absorb liquids, sparked a chemical reaction causing it to heat up and generate gases that dislodged its lid, spewing radioactive materials.” (http://uk.reuters.com/article/2015/03/27/us-usa-nuclear-new-mexico-idUKKBN0MN0C920150327)

The ‘right’ sort of kitty litter is commonly used to mop up nuclear waste.
