Waste History

Nuclear Radiation Problem

  • Radiation is produced by the nuclear reactions occurring in the spontaneous degradation of the waste over time
  • The radiation is dangerous
  • Need is to contain the radiation for a long time.
  • Need to protect the environment and biosphere

Radiation Level and Containment

Gamma Rays pose the major problem-These can be contained, and therein lies the BASIS of the solution to the problem

Decay of high level radiation over short time period
