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.

The mining and milling of uranium do not have the same level of potential safety problems that are associated with operation of nuclear reactors and other fuel cycle facilities. The uranium mines do have the same safety and environmental issues as other mines in addition to the precautions required to deal with the radioactivity of the ore.
