Executive Summary

A variety of nuclear activities have been carried out in the last 60 years. Military applications were the most common initially, followed by more peaceful uses such as nuclear energy production, nuclear materials for diagnosis and disease treatment, radioactive materials in industry, and research. Regardless of the activity, nuclear activities generate radioactive waste. The accumulations of radioactive materials and the wastes generated can be considered a burden for human society, both at present and in the future, since they require continuing monitoring, control and treatment. Knowing the amounts and types of such radioactive waste inventories can help in the assessment of the relative burdens.

Radioactive waste management involves two fundamental approaches: the radioactive materials can be either released or discharged to the environment, or they must be confined and isolated from the biosphere until the noxious radionuclides have decayed to innocuous concentrations. Releases of radioactivity to the environment generally occur as liquid or gaseous discharges (effluents) from nuclear facilities. The amount of radioactivity that can be released is based on allowable exposures to population groups and is controlled by national regulations and guidelines, usually based on recommendations of the International Committee on Radiation Protection.

There are very few instances where radioactive effluents from nuclear facilities can be released without some form of control or treatment to remove excessive radioactivity. Most of the radioactive wastes arising from the operation of nuclear fuel cycle facilities require processing to concentrate the radioactive elements into a smaller volume that can be more conveniently handled, thereby permitting the release or disposal of the bulk of the processed material.

Based on technology, the market for radioactive waste management market is segmented into transportation and disposal services, physical treatment, containment and storage, chemical treatment, decontamination and decommissioning, thermal destruction, stabilization and encapsulation, size reduction, and remediation technologies.

Chemical treatment, decontamination and decommissioning, thermal destruction, and stabilization and encapsulation technologies accounted for the fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh-largest shares, respectively, of the radioactive waste market based on the advantages of well-established technologies used and energy conservation they can offer.
