Demonstrating compliance with clearance levels in dismantling nuclear installations (and application to the WAK reprocessing plant)
This investigation has been concerned with characterization of waste materials arising from building demolition associated with the decommissioning of a reprocessing plant. As an example for data collection, the reprocessing plant Karlsruhe was chosen which dealt with a wide variety of fuels for reprocessing. The data which are becoming available on the inventories of the low-level wastes are used to discuss routing options within the decommissioning programme. The methodology developed for the study allows the radiological consequences of waste management options to be determined as a function of the numerical value of clearance criteria in terms of limits on activity concentration. Nuclide spectra for different process areas are evaluated so that the methodology permits the quantification of the widest possible range of radiological impacts arising from any specified management option, whether it involves recycling, re-use or disposal.
