The feasibility of remote handling, and hands on, recycling is assessed from limits on surface dose rates of the waste after 50 years storage at the plant site. Similarly, clearance feasibility is assessed from the residual radioactivity (energy of gamma and beta emissions, allowable limits of intake by inhalation and ingestion). Two power reactor designs, SEAFP plant model 1 and 2 are analyzed. The presence of tritium in the irradiated material is also taken into account. Large amounts of in-vessel materials can be recycled. Similarly, most of the waste arising from out-of-vessel materials can be cleared.
