STATE-OF-ART IN THE IMPROVEMENT OF INDUSTRIAL WASTE MANAGEMENT WITH RADIONUCLIDE LEVELS NOT COMPLYING WITH RADIOACTIVE WASTE ASSIGNMENT CRITERIA

JOURNAL: 2020, 14, p. 6-13

ANNOTATION:

The article overviews current practice associated with the management of industrial waste with elevated radionuclide levels (IWERL) not falling under radioactive waste category. It emphasizes that State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom has been actively addressing the challenge of safe IWERL management. A working group has been set featuring experts from FMBA of Russia, Rostekhnadzor, the Russian Academy of Sciences, the State Atomic Energy Corporation Rosatom and its units, as well as independent environmental organizations. The paper evaluates different trends in IWERL management presenting some proposals on the improvement of the legal framework focused on the management of industrial waste containing radioactive substances in quantities not exceeding the criteria established for waste categorization as radioactive waste. It provides IWERL management cost estimates considering various waste management options. IWERL management challenge has been discussed at Scientific and Technical Councils run by 3 government departments, also indicating the interdepartmental nature of this challenge.


Keywords: industrial waste with high radionuclide levels, radioactive waste, production and consumption waste, regulatory and
legal support, waste management
