  • Title:Nuclear waste

Transcript

  • 1. Nuclear Waste By Nicole Cepollina
  • 2.  
  • 3. WHAT IS NUCLEAR WASTE?
  • 4. The radioactive waste
  • 5.  
  • 6. For example...
  • 7. Nuclear BOMB production
  • 8. Nuclear waste can be leveled by the amount of radioactivity the waste produces.
  • 9. There are 3 main levels
  • 10. - VERY LOW-LEVEL WASTE - LOW AND INTERMEDIATE LEVEL WASTE - HIGH LEVEL WASTE
  • 11.  
  • 12. VERY LOW LEVEL WASTE
  • 13.  
  • 14.  
  • 15. Contains VERY LOW concentration of radioactivity
  • 16. and it I ncludes: -material used to handle the highly radioactive parts of nuclear reactors. - waste from medical procedures involving radioactive treatments or x-rays. includes paper towels, clothing and laboratory equipment, which have been used in areas where radioactive materials are used.
  • 17. It is comparatively easy to dispose of
  • 18. The Origins : from the operation and decommissioning of nuclear facilities.
  • 19. LOW AND INTERMEDIATE LEVEL WASTE
  • 20.  
  • 21. contains concentrations or quantities of radionuclides .
  • 22. Low and intermediate level waste is often separated into short-live & l o n g – l i v e d wastes.
  • 23. HIGH LEVEL WASTE
  • 24.  
  • 25. contains heat-generating radionuclides with long- and short-lived radionuclide concentrations.
  • 26. NORM
  • 27. contains low concentrations of naturally occurring radioactive materials.
  • 28. ORIGINS
  • 29. In South Africa radioactive waste is produced by the nuclear fuel cycle.
  • 30.
