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.

Hide / Show Abstract

The management of radioactive waste requires the adoption of a certain number of policies and practices that share a common objective: the handling, interim storage, and disposal of radioactive waste with every necessary safety precaution to prevent any undue radiation of people or contamination of the environment over both the short and the long term.
