NUCLEAR WASTE PRESENTATION NUCLEAR WASTE PRESENTATION Presentation Transcript

  • Nuclear Waste By Nicole Cepollina
  •  
  • WHAT IS NUCLEAR WASTE?
  • The radioactive waste
  •  
  • For example...
  • Nuclear BOMB production
  • Nuclear waste can be leveled by the amount of radioactivity the waste produces.
  • There are 3 main levels
  • - VERY LOW-LEVEL WASTE - LOW AND INTERMEDIATE LEVEL WASTE - HIGH LEVEL WASTE
  •  
  • VERY LOW LEVEL WASTE
  •  
  •  
  • Contains VERY LOW concentration of radioactivity
  • 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.
  • It is comparatively easy to dispose of
  • The Origins : from the operation and decommissioning of nuclear facilities.
  • LOW AND INTERMEDIATE LEVEL WASTE
  •  
  • contains concentrations or quantities of radionuclides .
  • Low and intermediate level waste is often separated into short-live & l o n g – l i v e d wastes.
  • HIGH LEVEL WASTE
  •  
  • contains heat-generating radionuclides with long- and short-lived radionuclide concentrations.
  • NORM
  • contains low concentrations of naturally occurring radioactive materials.
  • ORIGINS
  • In South Africa radioactive waste is produced by the nuclear fuel cycle.
