Abstract

This report demonstrates a methodology for comparing quantitatively the options open to decision-makers at various stages of the decommissioning process, taking into account radiological protection and other relevant factors. In order to compare different decommissioning options, various impacts associated with decommissioning operations and waste disposal are assessed, namely, costs and radiological, environmental and socio-political impact. The post-disposal radiological impact is calculated for four generic concepts (near surface, deep geological, coastal tunnel and deep ocean bed).
