Abstract

This paper discusses former and present approaches to the management of fusion activated waste which include shallow land burial (SLB) and recycling of fusion materials in other nuclear installations. A classification of fusion activated waste into site-independent classes has been proposed which divides waste into three categories (LLW, MLW and HLW) according to their long-term contact dose rate and volumetric decay heat generation. Waste management has been presented for three different fusion cases: (i) Ignitor, a high-field compact fusion machine design; (ii) NET/ITER, an experimental reactor design; (iii) EEF, a power reactor design.
