Cambridge, Mass.: Oelgeschlager, Gunn & Hain, © : Equity issues in radioactive waste management (): Kasperson, Roger E., Kates, Robert W.: Books. Societal Issues in Radioactive Waste Management. Placing high-level radioactive waste (HLW) in a deep geological repository has been the solution accepted by the technical community for more than 40 years.

However, there is only one such repository operating, the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in the United States, and it is not for HLW.

This reviews sources of radioactive waste and introduces radioactive decay and radiation shielding calculations. It covers technical and regulatory aspects of waste management with discussion questions at the end of each chapter to provide an opportunity to explore the many facets of waste management issues.3/5(1).

Radioactive and nuclear advancements are the signs of industrial development, but simultaneously proper handling and management of radioactive waste is a paramount problem in developing countries.

Radioactive waste, like other industrial by-products, is safe when managed appropriately. The National Radioactive Waste Management Facility will follow strict safety and security procedures in line with world’s best practice, and it will be subject to independent oversight from numerous Commonwealth regulators.3/5(7).

There have to be decisions on spent fuel management, whether the fuel is to be stored and/or reprocessed (when and where), on having the appropriate facilities and technical competence available when needed, on the management and disposition of the radioactive wastes resulting from any fuel reprocessing, and on the safeguarding and.

It will cover the law relating to the permitting and operation of nuclear power stations, the decommissioning and clean-up of former nuclear facilities, radiological protection, the management of radioactive waste and spent fuel, liability and insurance, and the security and transport of radioactive materials.

Abstract. Issues addressed in this book include: magnitude, characteristics, and trends of public concerns over radioactive waste; the issue of public trust and confidence in the institutions responsible for radioactive waste management; effects of the number and location of waste repositories on socioeconomic and institutional burdens associated with nuclear waste.

M.I. Ojovan, W.E. Lee, in An Introduction to Nuclear Waste Immobilisation (Second Edition), Objective of Radioactive Waste Management. The objective of radioactive waste management is to deal with radioactive waste in a manner that protects human health and the environment, now and in the future, without imposing an undue burden on future generations.

Waste management Waste production Radioactive waste ranges greatly in the level of risk it presents – from exposed overalls and mop heads that can be handled safely, to spent fuel bundles that must be contained for many years – while some legacy waste that predates Canada’s rigorous controls requires long-term cleanup projects.

principles applied to the management of both waste types are essentially the same. The safe disposal of radioactive waste is not the uniquely difficult issue that is perceived by the media, much of the public and by many politicians: • Radioactive waste is produced in much lower quantities than hazardous waste.Waste hierarchy.

The waste hierarchy refers to the "3 Rs" reduce, reuse and recycle, which classifies waste management strategies according to their desirability in terms of waste waste hierarchy is the cornerstone of most waste minimisation strategies.

The aim of the waste hierarchy is to extract the maximum practical benefits from products and to .Spain possesses a significant infrastructure for the management of spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste, from the administrative, technical and economic-financial point of view.

As regards the administrative side, there is an organisation based on a relatively ample and developed legislative framework.
