If you continue browsing the site, you agree to the use of cookies on this website.   This handbook is concerned with developing principles and standards for the safe disposal of solid radioactive wastes by burial deep in the Earth's crust. Radioactive wastes have focussed thinking on long-term environmental protection issues in an unprecedented Edition: 1. Radioactive waste can be in gas, liquid, or solid, form, and its level of radioactivity can vary. The waste can remain radioactive for a few hours or several months or even hundreds of thousands of years. Because it can be so hazardous and can remain radioactive for so long, finding suitable disposal facilities for radioactive waste is difficult.

for managing radioactive wastes. In carrying out this task the Agency has used the experience and talents of highly qualified experts from many disciplines and from widely distributed parts of the world.

This report is the work of an ad hoc panel of experts convened by the Agency to study the disposal of radioactive wastes into fresh water. The Low-level Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments Act of gave the states responsibility for the disposal of their low-level radioactive waste.

The Act encouraged the states to enter into compacts that would allow them to dispose of waste at a common disposal facility. Most states have entered into compacts; however, only one new disposal.

Mixed radioactive and organic wastes often are disposed in the shallow subsurface in arid regions. Contamination leaks from disposal facilities result in gaseous and water-borne contaminant transport that is unique and varies from accepted theories of contaminant transport.

Disposal of radioactive waste involves a variety of technical and managerial activities, and may extend over a very long time (potentially hundreds of years). These characteristics present a series of challenges to the development and implementation of effective management systems for facilities and activities for waste disposal.

Three general issues can be highlighted. First, there is a concern that society is imposing a serious burden on future generations by leaving behind a legacy of radioactive wastes from which may prove difficult to manage.

Presumably, clear proof that passive waste disposal systems will perform adequately is required to resolve this concern.The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is proposing to amend its regulations that govern low-level radioactive waste (LLRW) disposal facilities to require new and revised site-specific technical analyses, to permit the development of site-specific criteria for LLRW acceptance based on the.Radioactive waste is a by-product of various nuclear technology processes.

Industries generating radioactive waste include nuclear medicine, nuclear research, nuclear power, manufacturing, construction and nuclear weapons reprocessing.

Radioactive waste is regulated by government agencies in order to protect human health and the environment.
