volume reduction capacity
Explanation:
Difficult to say without seeing the rest of the text, but assuming they're trying to break down the volume of waste with high powered lasers, this might be an option.

Checked out laser ablation on Google and found the following site:
http://www.gnet.org/doe/dd/D&D081602.cfm
which states that \"The desorbed contaminants, especially radionuclides, can be confined within a much smaller volume\", so I still think volume reduction capacity is OK, especially as this is Abtrag not Abtragung.
