Abstract

This report describes the assessment of methods for determining equivalence between low, intermediate and high level radioactive wastes. Simple indicators based on impacts such as individual and collective doses and costs were used to estimate the amount of each waste considered equivalent. A method for determining equivalence using multiattribute utility analysis to balance all the relevant impacts was developed, and the key factors identified. The best performing simple indicators of equivalence were identified, and a personal computer (PC) program was developed to calculate equivalent amounts of low, intermediate and high level wastes.
