Technology Landscape Covering Advancements in Nuclear Waste Management

The application of nuclear fission technology typically in nuclear power generation, produces a by-product that is called as radioactive waste. The produced waste has to be managed properly to ensure minimal impact on the environment and to prevent it from harming human beings.

Public and private companies are extremely concerned in improving radioactive waste management. This can be seen through series of breakthrough innovations. Governments have also helped by providing funds to researches in radioactive waste management. Thus, this research service discusses on “Breakthrough Innovations in Radioactive Waste Management” and summarizes important innovations related to radioactive waste management.
