  • Assessment of management alternatives for LWR wastes - Volume 6 : Cost determination of the LWR waste management routes (treatment/conditioning/packaging/transport operations)


This study is part of an overall theoretical exercise aimed at evaluating a selection of management routes for LWR waste based on economic and radiological criteria. This report deals with the cost determination of a number of schemes for the treatment, conditioning, packaging, interim storage and transport operations of LWR wastes drawn up on the basis of Belgian, French and German practices in this particular area. In addition to the general procedure elaborated for determining, actualising and scaling of plant and transport costs associated with the various schemes, in-depth calculations of each intermediate management stage are included in this report.
