The Safety of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle - Third Edition

The procurement and preparation of fuel for nuclear power reactors, followed by its recovery, processing and management subsequent to reactor discharge, are frequently referred to as the nuclear fuel cycle. The facilities associated with these activities have an extensive and well-documented safety record accumulated over the past 50 years by technical experts and safety authorities. This third edition of The Safety of the Nuclear Fuel Cycle presents an up-to-date analysis of the safety aspects of the nuclear fuel cycle.

This chapter contains a discussion of the general safety matters associated with the fuel cycle, including hazards of both radiological and non-radiological nature.
Malevolent actions can be oriented towards nuclear fuel cycle facilities or radioactive matters transportation, the same way as they could be oriented towards any other dangerous product, activity or facility such as chemical or explosives factories. Protective measures against such actions are not specific to nuclear facilities, they are dealt with by specialists and their details are kept confidential.
