Lesson 7: SAFETY OF OPERATIONS III

Lesson 7: SAFETY OF OPERATIONS III

Radioactivity naturally decays over time, so radioactive waste has to be isolated and confined in appropriate disposal facilities for a sufficient period of time until it no longer poses a hazard. The period of time waste must be stored depends on the type of waste and radioactive isotopes. It can range from a few days for very short-lived isotopes to millions of years for spent nuclear fuel. Current major approaches to managing radioactive waste have been segregation and storage for short-lived waste, near-surface disposal for low and some intermediate-level waste, and deep burial or partitioning/transmutation for the high-level waste.
