The Nuclear Waste Management Organization (NWMO) recently joined together with community and industry partners to provide free hand sanitizer to those who need it across municipal and Indigenous communities in Bruce, Grey and Huron counties.   Reprocessing separates nuclear waste into component materials, including plutonium, which can then be re-used as nuclear reactor fuel—but also as the raw material for a nuclear weapon. UCS opposes reprocessing because it increases proliferation and terrorism risks while actually adding to the waste problem rather than reducing it.

This review will show that nuclear waste management is a world of materials science and engineering challenges that must stand the test of time, from designing engineered facilities to isolate waste from future civilisations, to inventing new materials to immobilise weapons-grade and surplus civil plutonium.

This reviews sources of radioactive waste and introduces radioactive decay and radiation shielding calculations. It covers technical and regulatory aspects of waste management with discussion questions at the end of each chapter to provide an opportunity to explore the many facets of waste management issues.3/5(1).

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. This book explored the many options to nuclear waste management, as well as the political/societal barriers and legal frameworks from both an international and local perspective.

One concern to nuclear waste management strategies around the world is that there is limited harmonization to what is a global concept.
