A review of the feasibility of recycling and/or reuse of components and materials arising from nuclear operations within the European Union has been undertaken. This review contains estimates of the amounts of low-level waste materials which may arise from nuclear facilities around the EU up to 2050. Detailed studies of 12 possible scenarios for utilization of this material have been carried out and from the results of these analyses a strategic evaluation of the feasibility of controlled release recycling within the nuclear sector has been made.
