High-level radioactive waste legislation by United States Download PDF EPUB FB2

High-level waste is the highly radioactive waste material resulting from the reprocessing of spent nuclear fuel, including liquid waste produced directly in reprocessing and any solid material derived from such liquid waste that contains fission products in sufficient concentrations; and other highly radioactive material that is determined, consistent with existing law, to require.

High-level radioactive waste management concerns how radioactive materials created during production of nuclear power and nuclear weapons are dealt with. Radioactive waste contains a mixture of short-lived and long-lived nuclides, as well as non-radioactive nuclides.

There was reported s tonnes of high-level nuclear waste stored in the USA in Abstract. This report provides a detailed, section-by-section analysis of the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Amendments Act of Appendices include lists of relevant law and legislation, relevant Congressional committees, members of Congress mentioned in the report, and exact copies of the and Acts.

High-level radioactive wastes are the highly radioactive materials produced as a byproduct of the reactions that occur inside nuclear reactors. High-level wastes take one of two forms: Spent (used) reactor fuel when it is accepted for disposal.

Waste materials remaining after spent fuel is reprocessed. Spent nuclear fuel is used fuel from a.

"high-level radioactive waste" means: (a) spent nuclear reactor fuel, not intended for reprocessing or research, or (b) the highly radioactive liquid, whose radioactivity consists mainly of fission products, with some actinides also present, that are generated during chemical reprocessing of irradiated nuclear fuel (aqueous waste from the first.

ineffective or at capacity. Therefore, inCongress created the Low-Level Radioactive Waste Policy Act (LLRWPA)2 which gave the states responsibility for low-level radioactive waste disposal.3 This legislation was ultimately unsuccessful in promoting states' responsibility for radio-active wastes generated within their boundaries.

In this report high-level waste refers to commercial spent nuclear fuel, naval spent nuclear fuel, defense-related high-level waste, highly enriched uranium, and Plutonium.

Key characteristics of these materials are (1) the type of radiation emitted, (2) the rate at which the intensity decreases with time, and (3) the ease with which the. Get this from a library.
