  • Gas Generation and Migration in Radioactive Waste Disposalby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2001; US$ 75.00

    In underground repositories for radioactive waste, significant quantities of gases may be generated as a result of several processes. The potential impact of gas generation, accumulation and migration on the performances of the various barriers and, ultimately, on the long-term safety of a repository, should therefore be assessed in the development... more...

  • Geological Disposal of Radioactive Wasteby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 51.00

    The concept of removing long-lived radioactive wastes from the human environment by disposal in deep geological repositories was developed several decades ago. In the intervening years, research efforts world-wide have increased our knowledge and understanding of how underground disposal systems will function over very long periods of time. Significant... more...

  • Porewater Extraction from Argillaceous Rocks for Geochemical Characterisationby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 102.00

    The definition of the chemical and isotopic composition of the groundwater present in argillaceous formations, which are considered as potential host rocks for radioactive waste disposal, is crucial for establishing their barrier properties. Therefore, a critical review of the relevant literature on the current methods applied to extract water and... more...

  • Features, Events and Processes (FEPs) for Geologic Disposal of Radioactive Wasteby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 42.00

    Safety assessments of disposal sites for radioactive waste involve analyses of potential releases of radionuclides from the disposed waste and subsequent transport to the human environment. An important stage of assessment is the identification and documentation of all the features, events and processes (FEPs) that may be relevant to long-term safety.... more...

  • Nuclear Regulation Investing in Trustby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2001; US$ 100.00

    Good governance and efficiency in decision making by governmental authorities are increasingly dependent upon mutual trust and confidence between those authorities and the public. This workshop provided an opportunity to exchange information and views on how national nuclear regulatory organisations can improve their interface with the public. more...

  • Ancillary Benefits and Costs of Greenhouse Gas Mitigationby OECD Publishing

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 123.00

    Policies to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases also have impacts on other policy goals, especially health. In some cases, these ancillary effects may be more significant than the direct greenhouse gas reduction impacts. While these relationships are generally recognised, analysis of climate policies does not systematically include them in policy... more...

  • Carbon Capture and Storageby Steve Rackley

    Elsevier Science 2009; US$ 160.00

    Carbon dioxide capture and storage (CCS) is a technology aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions from burning fossil fuels during industrial and energy-related processes. CCS involves the capture, transport and long-term storage of carbon dioxide, usually in geological reservoirs deep underground that would otherwise be released to the atmosphere.... more...

  • Radioactive Waste in Perspectiveby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2010; US$ 67.00

    Large volumes of hazardous wastes are produced each year, however only a small proportion of them are radioactive. While disposal options for hazardous wastes are generally well established, some types of hazardous waste face issues similar to those for radioactive waste and also require long-term disposal arrangements. The objective of this NEA study... more...

  • Arctic Air Pollutionby B. Stonehouse

    Cambridge University Press 1987; US$ 42.00

    Overall hangs the major question; can man-made pollution affect the delicate energy balance of the Arctic, and precipitate major climatic change worldwide? more...

  • Wastewater Hydraulicsby Willi H. Hager

    Springer 2010; US$ 159.00

    The second, enlarged edition of this established reference integrates many new insights into wastewater hydraulics. This work serves as a reference for researchers but also is a basis for practicing engineers. It can be used as a text book for graduate students, although it has the characteristics of a reference book. It addresses mainly the sewer... more...
