  • Signs of Dangerby Peter C. van Wyck

    University of Minnesota Press 2004; US$ 60.00

    Focusing on the government?s nuclear waste burial program in Carlsbad, New Mexico, Signs of Danger begins the urgent work of finding a new way of thinking about ecological threat in our time. The reflections at the center of this book?on memory, trauma, disaster, representation, and the virtual?offer invaluable insights into the interface of where... more...

  • Principles and Standards for the Disposal of Long-lived Radioactive Wastesby N. Chapman; C. McCombie

    Elsevier Science 2003; US$ 190.00

    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 way. Consequently, the way in which principles and standards are set, and the thinking behind... more...

  • Geological Disposal of Radioactive Wastes and Natural Analoguesby W. Miller; R. Alexander; N. Chapman; John C McKinley; J.A.T. Smellie

    Elsevier Science 2000; US$ 165.00

    Many countries are currently exploring the option to dispose of highly radioactive solid wastes deep underground in purpose built, engineered repositories. A number of surface and shallow repositories for less radioactive wastes are already in operation. One of the challenges facing the nuclear industry is to demonstrate confidently that a repository... more...

  • Mine Wastesby Bernd Lottermoser

    Springer 2007; US$ 169.00

    Providing an overview of wastes accumulating at mine sites, this book emphasizes the characterization, prediction, monitoring, disposal and treatment as well as environmental impacts of problematic mine wastes. It includes case studies from around the world, end-of-chapter summaries, lists of resource materials and www sites for each waste type. more...

  • Nuclear Development Timing of High-level Waste Disposalby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 63.00

    This study identifies key factors influencing the timing of high-level waste (HLW) disposal and examines how social acceptability, technical soundness, environmental responsibility and economic feasibility impact on national strategies for HLW management and disposal. Based on case study analyses, it also presents the strategic approaches adopted in... more...

  • Nuclear Development Management of Recyclable Fissile and Fertile Materialsby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2007; US$ 42.00

    Interest in nuclear energy continues to grow in many countries as a means to ensure security of energy supply and to limit greenhouse gas emissions from the power sector. In this context, recyclable materials constitute an asset for broadening the resource base for nuclear fuel supply, especially in medium- and long-term perspectives. This report provides... more...

  • Radioactive Waste Managementby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2007; US$ 70.00

    The long-term safety of deep disposal of radioactive waste is strongly dependent on the performance of the geological setting. The geology fulfils important safety functions including isolating the waste from human contact or intrusion, providing a stable physical and chemical environment, insulating against external disturbances, and preventing... more...

  • Radioactive Waste Managementby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2007; US$ 63.00

    These proceedings present the main findings from, and the papers delivered at, the fourth NEA-EC workshop on Engineered Barrier Systems (EBS), which took place in Tokyo, Japan, in September 2006. This final workshop of the series focused on strategies and methods to demonstrate that EBS designs will fulfill he relevant requirements for long-term... more...

  • Radioactive Waste Management Regulating the Long-Term Safety of Geological Disposal of Radioactive Wasteby OECD Publishing; Nuclear Energy Agency

    Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2008; US$ 56.00

    Regulating the long-term safety of geological disposal of radioactive waste is a key part of making progress on the radioactive waste management issue. A survey of member countries has shown that differences exist both in the protection criteria being applied and in the methods for demonstrating compliance, reflecting historical and cultural differences... more...

  • Comprehensive chemical kineticsby Clement H. Bamford

    Elsevier Science 1991; US$ 72.95

    This book has been written by a group of mathematicians and chemists whose common interest is in the complex dynamics of catalytic reactions. Based on developments in mathematical chemistry, a general theory is described that allows the investigation of the relationships between the kinetic characteristics of complex reactions and their detailed reaction... more...
