One of the principal objections to or problems with the use of nuclear fuel is that a proven method for safe disposal of spent nuclear fuel has yet to be established. The central focus of most schemes underway to dispose of these high-level radioactive wastes relies on clay-based buffers and barriers to isolate spent fuel canisters in boreholes deep... more...

This book documents an important case study on the use of deep sea tailing placement at the Island Copper Mine on Canada?s Vancouver Island. It?s the most extensive study on underwater tailing placement ever conducted. Over the course of 30 years, more than 400 million tons of tailing solids were deposited on the ocean floor with minimal environmental... more...

Bestselling author Kim Cameron delivers both a riveting story and a thoroughly researched case study that delves into the spectacularly impossible success of the shutdown and clean-up of Rocky Flats, one of the most notorious nuclear weapons plants in the United States. more...
- Elsevier 2000; US$ 98.95
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...
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2001; US$ 109.00
Analysis of the long-term safety of radioactive waste repositories, using performance assessment and other tools, is required prior to implementation. The initial stage in developing a repository safety assessment is the identification of all factors that may be relevant to the long-term safety of the repository and their combination to form scenarios.... more...
Using Thermodynamic Sorption Models for Guiding Radioelement Distribution Coefficient (Kd) InvestigationsOrganisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2001; US$ 84.00
A general consensus has been reached among technical experts that high-level radioactive waste can safely be disposed of in deep geological repositories. Safety studies are carried out to evaluate the overall capacity of a particular disposal site to confine waste and minimise radioactive releases. Since the principal way in which radioactive elements... more...
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2000; US$ 33.00
One of the challenges facing the continued availability of nuclear energy is that of ensuring the safe, environmentally acceptable and economic management of the waste generated during its production. There is a broad scientific and technical consensus that disposal of high-level, long-lived radioactive waste in deep geologic formations is an appropriate... more...
- Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development 2010; US$ 63.00
National radioactive waste management programmes are in various phases of siting facilities and rely on distinct technical approaches for different categories of waste. In all cases, it is necessary for institutional actors and the potential or actual host community to build a meaningful, workable relationship. Partnership approaches are effective... more...
