    Planning for the management of nuclear wastes -- whatever their level of radioactivity -- is one of the most important environmental problems for all societies that produce utility, industrial, medical, or other radioactive waste products. Attemps to site low-level radioactive waste disposal. Page Radioactive wastes have confronted industrial democracies with a confounding and perplexing societal challenge. Siting radioactive waste facilities, in particular, has emerged as a difficult undertaking, primarily because this is where general misgivings about .

    The safe management of nuclear and radioactive wastes is a subject that has recently received considerable recognition due to the huge volume of accumulative wastes and the increased public awareness of the hazards of these wastes. This book aims to cover the practice and research efforts that are currently conducted to deal with the technical difficulties in different radioactive waste. The discussion complications of the siting of radioactive waste from the Paks nuclear power plant fits into the international trends analysing nuclear waste siting, as witnessed by a recent paper (Vári–Ferencz, ) which undertakes to summarise the events. Although the authors examine the siting of low-level waste and high-level waste Author: Szántó Richárd.

    In Whose Backyard, Whose Risk, environmental lawyer, professor, and commentator Michael B. Gerrard tackles the thorny issue of how and where to dispose of hazardous and radioactive waste. In Whose Backyard, Whose Risk, environmental lawyer, professor, and commentator Michael B. Gerrard tackles the thorny issue of how and where to dispose of hazardous and radioactive waste. Hazardous Waste Facility Siting: Community, Firm, and Governmental Perspectives Roger E. Kasperson With widespread urbanization and technological development, with increasing pressure upon land, and with growing concern over environmental and health protection, siting controversial facilities of all sizes and kinds has become increasingly.

Abstract. Nuclear waste must be stored in a safe Nuclear waste and facility siting policy book consistent manner among the nation states. Given the myriad of types of waste generated through civilian applications of radionuclides in medicine, research, and industry, it is important to understand the creation of the waste classification system and its use among the nation states in handling and storage of nuclear waste.

The creation of constitutional choice siting decision groups would go further to ensure that a fair and open siting process for low-level nuclear waste disposal actually occurs, thereby minimizing the chance for political obstacles to block the siting process on this level.

Bythis program was widely considered to be a failure. @article{osti_, title = {Siting low-level radioactive waste disposal facilities: The public policy dilemma}, author = {English, M.R.}, abstractNote = {The book's focus is on one overwhelming problems facing the compacts and states: figuring out where low-level waste disposal sites should be located.

The author discusses the central issues underlying this dilemma - authority, trust, risk. The United States (US) program for siting interim storage and permanent disposal facilities for used nuclear fuel (UNF) is at a crossroads. The March request by the US Department of Energy (DOE) to the US Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) for termination of the Yucca Mountain Project (YMP) license application, followed one year later by the disastrous nuclear events in Fukushima, Japan.

Abstract. The siting of radioactive wastes poses a significant planning challenge to many countries.

The public is generally extremely apprehensive about radioactive waste, and this has led to substantial delays in siting much needed waste by: Siting is the term used to describe the process to select where a nuclear installation is built and whether the decided location is suitable for it.

Siting is one of the important decisions in the early stage of a planned nuclear energy project. She has spoken on a wide range of topics, from women and science to nuclear policy and regulatory politics. InMIT Press published a book she co-edited, Uncertainty Underground: Yucca Mountain and the Nation's High-Level Nuclear Waste, which explored technical issues at the proposed waste disposal facility at Yucca Mountain, Nevada.

The Nuclear Waste Policy Act (NWPA) supports the use of deep geologic repositories for the safe storage and/or disposal of radioactive waste. The Act establishes procedures to evaluate and select sites for geologic repositories and for the interaction of state and federal governments.

It also provides a timetable of key milestones the federal. The Yucca Mountain Nuclear Waste Repository, as designated by the Nuclear Waste Policy Act amendments ofis a proposed deep geological repository storage facility within Yucca Mountain for spent nuclear fuel and other high-level radioactive waste in the United States.

The site is located on federal land adjacent to the Nevada Test Site in Nye County, Nevada, about 80 mi ( km. Nuclear and chemical waste facilities can be successfully sited, despitenimby responses, if siting programs account for the sources of public concern.

Irrational fear is not the main source; instead, waste managers must deal with perceived inequities in the distribution of benefits and costs, and concern about facility safety. Benefit-cost inequities may be dealt with in part by keeping wastes Cited by: The book concludes with carefully considered recommendations for a new national policy for the storage of hazardous nuclear waste.

Everyone concerned about nuclear waste and how it should be managed at the federal, state, and local levels will find valuable information in this. Launched by the Bipartisan Policy Center inthe Nuclear Waste Council seeks to expand national and regional conversations on nuclear waste and to develop policy options that ultimately could lead to an implementable nuclear waste strategy.

In the first phase of its work, the council convened five regional meetings across the United States. NTI Senior Program Officer in the Material Security & Minimization Program at the Nuclear Threat Initiative Andrew Newman, PhD. co-authored a new book on decision-making and siting for radioactive waste disposal facilities.

This book explores siting dilemmas - situations in which an "authority" (e.g., Congress, a consortium of utilities) deems it in the best interest of society to build a facility such as an incinerator, but opponents living near the proposed site thwart the plan.
