Assessment of management alternatives for LWR wastes - Volume 1 : Main achievements of the joint study
This report deals with the main achievements of a joint theoretical study aimed at evaluating a selection of management routes for LWR wastes, relying to a certain extent on national practices in this particular area, on the basis of economic and radiological criteria. All individual intermediate steps entering a management route, from radioactive-wastes production up to their disposal in near-surface sites or in a deep repository, have been identified, described and cost-evaluated throughout the study. The radiological impact assessment comprises estimates of both individual and collective doses resulting from normal discharges of radioactive effluents and from disposal of radioactive waste products in near-surface sites. All specific data concerning the description of the different management routes considered, as well as the methodology applied to evaluate cost and radiological impact, are detailed in the subsequent volumes of the series (Volumes 2 to 8).
