Latest Research in Nuclear Waste Management
The Journal of Nuclear Energy Science & Power Generation Technology publishes the Latest Research in Nuclear Waste Management. It covers all the major fields and interdisciplinary aspects of Nuclear Waste Management but does not limit to it. It also covers Nuclear Energy Research, Nuclear Engineering, Nuclear Materials & Fuel Research, Applied Nuclear Chemistry, Reactor Engineering & Design, Nuclear Thermal Hydraulics, Nuclear Instruments and Methods, Nuclear Waste Management, Radiological Safety Analysis, Reactor Construction, Nuclear Energy Policy, Radiation Measurement and Exposure Control, Fusion and Plasma Energy Research. Radioactive wastes are wastes that contain radioactive material. Radioactive wastes are usually by-products of nuclear power generation and other applications of nuclear fission or nuclear technology, such as research and medicine. Radioactive waste is hazardous to most forms of life and the environment, and is regulated by government agencies in order to protect human health and the environment. All parts of the nuclear fuel cycle produce some radioactive waste and the relatively modest cost of managing and disposing of this is part of the electricity cost, i.e. it is internalised and paid for by the electricity consumers. At each stage of the fuel cycle there are proven technologies to dispose of the radioactive wastes safely. The Journal of Nuclear Energy Science & Power Generation Technology is indexed in CAS.
