Purpose of the Nation-wide target ecological program of the treatment of radioactive waste
The purpose of the Nation-wide target ecological program of the treatment of radioactive waste (further - the Program) is realization of state policy in the sphere of the treatment of radioactive waste directed to environment protection, lives and health of the population from impact of ionizing radiation.
The program provides activities for the following main directions:
the treatment of radioactive waste on platforms of the companies on which they are formed;
the treatment of radioactive waste on specialized enterprises according to the treatment of radioactive waste (the daleespetsializirovanny companies) until their burial;
burial of radioactive waste.
The treatment of radioactive waste provides:
carrying out characterization, classification and forecasting of education;
preliminary processing, conversion and conditioning;
providing producers of radioactive waste and specialized enterprises with the necessary number of the corresponding containers.
implementation of measures for minimization of amounts of education;
accounting and control of education.
Action of this Program does not extend to the address with:
the fulfilled nuclear fuel, waste of the uranium mining and uranium-processing industry which according to the legislation are not determined as radioactive waste;
sources of ionizing radiation before their transfer to specialized enterprises for long-term storage.
Ways and methods of the problem resolution
The activities connected with the treatment of radioactive waste caused emergence of such problem as need of creation of elements of infrastructure of the treatment of radioactive waste (in particular (storages, containers and the equipment)) and complete system
treatment of them.
The problem resolution is possible by three options which are essentially differing on extent of conversion of waste and methods of their storage and burial.
