Title: Wastes and waste management in the uranium fuel cycle for light water reactors.
Authors: Costello, JM
Issue Date: Aug-1975
Publisher: Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation
Abstract: The manufacturing processes in the uranium fuel cycle for light water reactors have been described with particular reference to the chemical and radiological wastes produced and the waste management procedures employed. The problems and possible solutions of ultimate disposal of high activity fission products and transuranium elements from reprocessing of irradiated fuel have been reviewed. Quantities of wastes arising in each stage of the fuel cycle have been summarised. Wastes arising from reactor operation have been described briefly.
