Waste Disposal and Storage
Due to the remaining radioactive properties, the
nuclear fuel cycle byproducts must be controlled
and/or disposed. These byproducts can be divided
into two categories--low-level waste (LLW) and
high-level waste (HLW).
a. LLW
The RCS glossary defines low-level waste
(LLW) as "Waste that contains radioactivity and
is not classified as high-level waste, transuranic
waste, spent nuclear fuel, or byproduct material
as defined in Section 11e(2) of the Atomic
Energy Act, as amended. Test specimens of
fissionable material irradiated only for research
and development and not for production of
power or plutonium may be classified as low-
level waste provided the concentration of
transuranic activity is less than 100 nCi/g." LLW
could be in the form of liquids, solids, or gasses.
Liquid waste is usually processed to remove
radioactive material and then recycled or
disposed.
