- 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...
- 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...
- 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 WasteOrganisation 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...
- Springer 2009; US$ 209.00
Describes and assesses concepts for long-term disposal of highly radioactive waste. This book discusses different types of rock with respect to practical difficulties in construction of a repository, and the efficiency in isolating radioactive waste. more...
- Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 231.00
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...
- Wiley 2008; US$ 150.00
In Managing Food Industry Waste: Common Sense Methods for Food Processors , waste management expert Robert Zall shares his philosophy and techniques for monitoring and accounting for food processing wastage. The text shows food processing managers how much of the waste now being generated can become a managed resource for producing economic credits.... more...
- Wiley 2008; US$ 155.00
Production-integrated environmental protection is synonymous with - reducing the amount of potential pollutants at source - reducing the consumption of resources and energy - recycling and utilization of residues and used products, and therefore a topic of considerable current interest. No chemical process exists that produces only the product... 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...
