New PDF release: Long-term Performance of Permeable Reactive Barriers

Whereas broad study has been played on many technological elements of permeable reactive obstacles and a few contaminants have to date been effectively taken care of by means of PRB platforms, long term functionality has now not been broadly thought of and little is understood in regards to the procedures influencing long term behaviour.

Copyright © National Academy of Sciences. All rights reserved. html Problems of Spent Nuclear Fuel Management and Storage Site Selection* M. I. Solonin Russian Ministry of Atomic Energy In this report I will cover the complex fate of the products of existing nuclear technologies, including spent nuclear fuel and radioactive wastes, as well as the degree to which they affect prospects for the development of the international atomic energy sector.

In addition to transmuting the highly radioactive constituents of spent fuel, there is the possibility of separating out the uranium to sufficient purity that it could be disposed of as Class C low-level waste or reused in reactors. The potential benefits of transmutation and such uranium separation can be seen in Figure 3, which displays a graph of the accumulation over time of civilian spent fuel in the United States both with and without transmutation and uranium separation. Currently there are about 44,000 metric tons of spent nuclear fuel residing at commercial nuclear power plants in the United States, with some 2000 metric tons being generated each year.

These forecasts also promise growth in the absolute amounts of electricity to be produced at nuclear power plants. It is interesting to consider the objective capacities for increasing the nuclear production of electricity around the world. Let us recall that the share of electricity produced by the nuclear power sector now totals 16 percent, and the majority of representatives of this industry express optimistic views regarding the long-term prospects for its development. It is noted that no substantial growth should be anticipated in the next 10–20 years.
