  • 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...

  • 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...

  • High Level Radioactive Waste (HLW) Disposalby R. PUSCH; R. YONG; M. NAKANO

    WIT Press 2011; US$ 260.00

    High Level Radioactive Waste (HLW) Disposal, A Global Challenge presents the most recent information on proposed methods of disposal for the most dangerous radioactive waste and for assessing their function from short- and long-term perspectives. It discusses new aspects of the disposal of such waste, especially HLW.The book is unique in the literature... more...

  • Water Recovery in Pulp and Paper Makingby Pira International Ltd

    iSmithers Rapra Publishing 2008; US$ 380.00

    This study forms part of a suite of three technology studies from Pira focusing on chemical, water and energy recovery in pulp and paper making. The availability of fresh, uncontaminated water globally is decreasing at a rapid rate. In industrialised countries, the recovery and reuse of treated effluent is becoming increasingly essential. Stronger... more...

  • Ground Water Reactive Transport Modelby Fan Zhang

    Bentham Science Publishers 2012; US$ 44.00

    Ground water reactive transport models are useful to assess and quantify contaminant precipitation, absorption and migration in subsurface media. Many ground water reactive transport models available today are characterized by varying complexities, strengths, and weaknesses. Selecting accurate, efficient models can be a challenging task. This ebook... more...

  • The Legacy of American Copper Smeltingby Bode J. Morin

    University of Tennessee Press 2013; US$ 49.00

         Throughout world history, copper has been a significant metal for a vast number of cultures, from the oldest civilizations on record to the Bronze Age and Greek and Roman antiquity. Though replaced by iron as the primary metal for tools and weapons in ancient civilizations, copper found new resurgence in the nineteenth... more...
