Abstract

The European Community (EC) is conducting research on the decommissioning of nuclear installations with the prime objective of developing effective techniques and procedures to ensure the protection of man and his environment against the potential hazards of nuclear installations that have been finally shut down. This book contains the results of the 1984-1988 five-year programme of research on the decommissioning of nuclear power plants which were presented at the International Conference on the Decommissioning of Nuclear Installations, held in Brussels, October 1989. The programme extended to all types of installations of the nuclear fuel cycle and produced numerous scientific and technical achievements, some of which have already been tested on an industrial scale. Great progress has been achieved in particular in the reduction of metal waste arising from decommissioning, due to advances in areas such as aggressive decontamination procedures and techniques for melting and recycling low-level radioactive waste metal.
