image of 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.

Safety of Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities

Nuclear Energy Agency

Decommissioning is the final stage in the life-cycle of a nuclear facility. The final act of shutting down the facility should be to remove the radioactive materials in process and the radioactive waste from normal operations. Subsequently, during decommissioning, the remaining radioactivity must be safely removed from the facility through decontamination and dismantling, so that the facility can be demolished, or refurbished for re-use.
