The Board on Radioactive Waste Management (BRWM) of the U.S. National Academies believes that informed and reasoned discussion of relevant scientific, engineering and social issues can-and should-play a constructive role in the decision process by providing information to decision makers on relevant technical and policy issues.

Radioactive waste management. Radioactive waste materials are produced as by-products of research, nuclear power generation, and nuclear weapons manufacture. Radioactive waste is classified by the U.S. government into five groups: high-level, transuranic (chemical elements heavier than uranium), spent fuel, uranium mill tailings, and low-level radioactive waste. @article{osti_, title = {Radioactive waste management}, author = {Tsoulfanidis, N. and Cochran, R.G.}, abstractNote = {The management of radioactive waste is a very important part of the nuclear industry. The future of the nuclear power industry depends to a large extent on the successful solution of the perceived or real problems associated with the disposal of both low . Research studies in the management of radioactive waste began in the s. As the commercial nuclear industry evolved through the s and s, additional emphasis was placed on developing long-term solutions for radioactive : John E. Marra, Ronald A. Palmer. The safe management of nuclear and radioactive wastes is a subject that has recently received considerable recognition due to the huge volume of accumulative wastes and the increased public awareness of the hazards of these wastes. This book aims to cover the practice and research efforts that are currently conducted to deal with the technical difficulties in different radioactive .

This report provides an assessment of the effects of the current management policy for low-level radioactive waste (LLRW), and resulting consequences, such as higher LLRW disposal costs and onsite storage of LLRW, on the current and future activities of biomedical research.   1- Radioactive Waste Management in A Hospital www materials for the geological storage of toxic and radioactive waste, however, it is generally believed that the nuclear waste are buried at. The wastes arising from these activities have differing physical, chemical and radiological characteristics. This publication gives guidance on the storage of solid, liquid and gaseous radioactive wastes in a wide range of facilities, including those at which waste is generated, treated and conditioned.   Future waste streams arising from pyrochemical processing, which uses molten salt technology to treat radioactive waste, will contain varying salt contents and need development of new routes for treatment and immobilisation of such wastes (NNL, ).Each waste category may consist of material contaminated by or containing radionuclides which are differentiated .
