Waste Disposal

18 Oct

Hi again everybody. Welcome to the blog again..Today we had a great talk on waste disposal for nuclear power plant.

There two types of waste disposal which is Short Lived Low Level & Intermediate Level Waste (LILW-SL) and High Level Waste, Spent Fuel and Long Lived Waste (HLW and LILW-LL).

Radioactive waste generated in nuclear power stations includes low-level radioactive gaseous, liquid, and solid waste. For radioactive gaseous and some liquid, the waste will discharge into air or sea when the safety confirmation has been confirmed. The remainder of the liquid wastes and solid wastes are treated, sealed into drums, and then stored under strict conditions in a storage building on-site.

So did you notice that nuclear power is the only energy industry which takes full responsibility for all its wastes, and costs this into the final product….it’s safe energy management….together we go for green technology!!

    Even if the waste is treated to certain extent, if radioactive gaseous and some liquid waste discharged into air or sea would it cause harm to the inhabitants of the habitat.

    Its amazing to actually learn about nuclear….the more i read the more i know that nuclear is the current best energy form!

      can you guys tell more details about this water disposal?? such as on how was the procedure and how safe it can be to be released to the sea. and what happen to the remainder liquid waste and solid waste??are those things gonna be in the on site building forever??

    The creation of long-lived radioactive wastes is currently the most formidable problem facing the nuclear industry.In 1987, a site was chosen for the first permanent high-level commercial nuclear waste storage repository in the United States–Yucca Mountain, 100 miles northwest of Las Vegas, Nevada. Expected to cost up to $15 billion, this repository is scheduled to go into operation by the year 2010. How will the Malaysian government response regarding this issue I wonder.

    i agree with the blogger..from what i read in the article..i know that the nuclear power plant take a great safety on its waste..i feel more confident to the nuclear energy..now,if the government build the NPP in Malaysia, i agree with 100%..TQ

    hi,are all the safe discharged radioactive waste have a short half life? i mean,is there any implication to human or fauna if there are too many of them exposed in the sea and air?

    salam..
    i also agree with da blogger..great explanation but maybe later you can explain more about da procedure on how the water disposal carry out their process..we should have good planning to conduct nuclear power plant energy in this country..tq

    hi,
    i have a question. can anything be done with radioactive waste other than disposing it?

    hello,friends

    i really fascinated on the ways that they use to dispose the nuclear waste,so that it will gives least effect to the environment,although the percentage of human that will exposed to radiation is very less,but according to the statistics of other country,which already use nuclear,the number of skin cancer cases increase because of this radiation,so how goverment should overcome this???

    hye..its true that nuclear industry really put safety as its top priority..such article about radioactive waste management should be spread more..if the effects is really as what we think so(tragic),the other countries will not use such technology in the first place..npp is go and should be considered wisely..thankz

    Hello,
    Yes I think we all know how much care and attention is given to nuclear waste disposal and management. However we must not discount the possibility of a breach/leak which could be disastrous. Thus the relevant parties should also formulate a panic/disater plan,on how to deal with a possible radioactive leak well and effectively. Then only we can feel more safe and at ease.

    ‘For radioactive gaseous and some liquid, the waste will discharge into air or sea when the safety confirmation has been confirmed.’
    if this is considered to be safe, who will reponsible if something bad happen and how often will the inspection of the disposal to be make and how does this will help to safe the environment?

    Ah… another post on nuclear waste disposal. it’s always nice reading it . No matter how advance the way of waste management is, there’s still possibilities for it to fails.
    We must take these into account for our preparation.

    how bout solid waste? and what are drums. what happens to the drums after that? but its good to know that the industry is taking responsibility for its waste and i do hope that when nuclear energy comes to our country, it would be same as well. (:

    Hi friends,
    Nice blog on nuclear waste disposal.
    Nuclear power plant industries will take full responsibility for all its wastes by treating them… Without proper safety precaution, radioactive leaks and discharged of liquid waste into air and water will harm our environment. There is a small possibilities of it to occur.

    Hmm…another factor to be focused on(by the government ofcourse) that is…NUCLEAR WASTE management..
    From what i’ve heard, these radioactive nuclear waste materials, either in liquid or solid states…are to be stored in an air tight storage facility, be it underground or above it…but then, THATS just the thing…they are to be STORED ONLY, not disposed off..what happens when the number of wastes increases..should there be built another storage site??..
    And interesting to me, there is currently no effective method in disposing nuclear wastes..just STORING it..
    So, for me i fully support the governments plans to use nuclear energy…but b4 setting up one, there must be a suitable and effective plan to manage the nuclear wastes produced…be it only to STORE it..
    Peace!

    The waste disposal is the main highlight in implementing the usage of nuclear in our country. this is because this waste effects the environment as well as the health of humans. Many countries who are using nuclear, has the numbers increasing in health cases but it doesn’t mean that its bad.We should be able to find a better alternative to dispose the waste. As what said above maybe water disposal. but we should not only rely on that only, we should also think of more disposal method.
