Radioactive waste disposal : Recommended criteria for siting a repository : Euradwaste series No 6Funded under: FP2-RADWASTOM 4C
Most industrial activities produce waste materials for which there is no further use. A large part of these wastes are relatively harmless; there are some, however, such as toxic chemical waste and radioactive waste, that could be detrimental to health and the environment if not properly managed. The waste material quantities involved are huge and in spite of efforts for limitation and reuse, they are increasing with industrial development. Some parts of the land therefore have to be reserved for the disposal of these wastes. Radioactive waste makes up nearly one percent of the amount of waste which requires special care in disposal. The present report addresses the question of the suitability of a site for a land-based disposal of radioactive conditioned solid waste, on or near the surface, or at depth.
