Apted, J. Ahn, in Geological Repository Systems for Safe Disposal of Spent Nuclear Fuels and Radioactive Waste, Introduction. Geological disposal has been the recommended approach for the permanent disposal of radioactive wastes since the seminal US National Academy of Sciences/National Research Council’s report The Disposal of Radioactive Wastes on Land Deep-Mined Geological Disposal of Radioactive Waste Bruce W.D.

It called into question the direction of the U.S. program during the s and noted that the prescriptive approach being taken was   60, “Disposal of High-Level Radioactive Waste in Geologic Repositories.” Disposal of low level radioactive waste is also s ubject to licensing by the USNRC. The regulations for these disposal facilities are in 10 CFR P “Licensing Requirements for Land Disposal of Radioactive Waste.”

6 Waste Forms and Disposal Environments. The first charge of the statement of task for this study (see Box in Chapter 2) calls on the National Academies to identify and describe “Essential characteristics of waste forms that will govern their performance within relevant disposal study will focus on disposal systems associated with high-cost waste streams such as high-level Nuclear reactor - Nuclear reactor - Waste disposal: In the absence of reprocessing, spent fuel is considered to be waste and must be prepared for permanent disposal in a separate facility. In addition, the waste stream from spent-fuel reprocessing must also be disposed of. Many nuclear countries, from the United States to China to Finland, have researched the technologies and geologic   Used Nuclear Fuel and High­Level Radioactive Waste Secretary of Energy Moniz announces DOE will pursue consent­ based approach to siting facilities for interim storage and disposal As a nation, we have been studying nuclear waste management and geologic disposal for decades.
