    Summary The French agency for radioactive waste management (Andra) is in charge of the long‐term management of radioactive waste generated in France. Andra manages two disposal facilities in operat. Geological Repository Systems for Safe Disposal of Spent Nuclear Fuels and Radioactive Waste, Second Edition, critically reviews state-of-the-art technologies and scientific methods relating to the implementation of the most effective approaches to the long-term, safe disposition of nuclear waste, also discussing regulatory developments and social engagement approaches as major themes.

    Low-Level Radioactive Waste. London: Earthscan/RFF Press. pages. ISBN , $ paperback. Daniel J. Sherman. Nuclear waste management in the United States has largely become synonymous with high-level waste and the three-decade odyssey over the proposed creation of a single national repository near Yucca Mountain, Nevada. A book review by Alice Friedemann of “Too Hot to Touch: The Problem of High-Level Nuclear Waste” by William M. Alley & Rosemarie Alley. Cambridge University Press. We’re leaving our descendants with toxic nuclear waste that will last up to a million years.

    Fig. 1 — Toxicity of high-level radioactive waste versus time. 8 The ordinate is the number of cancer deaths that would be expected if all the waste prouced by one large nuclear power plan in one year were eaten by people. The individual curves show the toxicity of the individual radioactive species in the waste (as labeled), and the top black curve shows their sum, the total toxicity. They also chronicle “a tale of two repositories”—one, the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant in New Mexico, known as WIPP, the world’s only operating deep geologic nuclear waste disposal facility, which emerged from a contentious but ultimately successful struggle between federal and state interests; the other, Yucca Mountain, mandated top.

Low-Level Radioactive Waste. In Canada, low-level radioactive waste is mostly historic waste left behind by more than 60 years of government nuclear research (obsolete research facilities, contaminated soils, etc.).

21 The rest is mainly “contaminated equipment from the operation of nuclear power plants,” such as cables, protective.

Low-level waste, with relatively low concentrations of radioactive substances, originates from a variety of sources. Most intermediate and all high-level waste, with high concentrations of radioactive substances, originates from nuclear power and military by: 3.

Waste (predominantly low level and short-lived) is disposed of in rock chambers that have been excavated in several different rock types, originally for different purposes, and subsequently used for radioactive waste disposal.
