This book analyzes the political and economic conditions that precipitated the nuclear power and ratepayer protest and examines citizen opposition to the Washington Public Power Supply System (WPPSS) nuclear venture between 1976 and 1981. .
This comprehensive and authoritative volume will serve as a complete introduction to those new to the field, as well as an up-to-date desk reference on regulations and resources for experienced practitioners. The handbook will provide a forum building a network of consistent approaches, practices, and results. Covering both NRC and DOE approaches, this book applies not only to decommissioning existing nuclear facilities, but by crossing the traditional lines between operations and reuse, this will also allow us to rethink the construction of new ones. The expert team of authors provides valuable lessons from their collective experiences in nuclear decommissioning. They represent areas pertaining to policy, engineering, and science. The handbook focuses primarily on time-tested and proven technologies.
This publication addresses the chronology of events and circumstances of the radiological accident in Ventanilla, Peru, in February 2014. The information includes a detailed description of the international assistance provided by the IAEA, the health consequences and dose assessment for, and the medical management of the affected individual. This information and the lessons learned from the accident, relating to its circumstances, the notification, medical response, dose assessment and response at national and international levels are key aspects for Member States to consider when analysing their response procedures to radiological emergencies. The intention is to aid the and identification of necessary actions to be implemented in order to avoid or prevent potential similar accidents.
This publication presents the results of a collaborative project on key indicators for innovative nuclear energy systems. It describes the approach and several case studies performed by Member States to evaluate, on a comparative basis, both nuclear energy system and nuclear energy evolution scenario options with evolutionary and innovative nuclear energy technologies and examines the applicability of this approach for different kinds of problems in the nuclear and non-nuclear energy planning fields.
This publication addresses costs arising during individual phases of an environmental remediation project, how they can be calculated, and how they can be structured and documented. It provides the methodology of cost estimation and includes examples of cost estimate models, development plans, cost elements and work breakdown structures. The guide also contains an overview of potentially suitable remediation technologies, which may help the reader to structure the options study.
This publication provides guidance to States, competent authorities and operators on how to develop and maintain contingency plans for nuclear facilities. It can be used as a starting point for organizations that have not previously prepared or developed contingency plans, as well as a reference for organizations that wish to validate or improve their existing contingency plans. It is intended for use by senior managers and security specialists charged with developing such plans and by competent authorities responsible for their oversight.
This new revision provides guidance to States and their competent authorities on how to establish or improve, implement, maintain and sustain the elements of the nuclear security regime related to radioactive material, associated facilities and activities, with particular emphasis on the development of regulatory requirements. The publication applies to the security of radioactive material in use or in storage as well as associated facilities and associated activities and assists Member States in their regimes against unauthorized removal of the radioactive material or sabotage performed with the intent to cause harmful radiological consequences.
This publication is part of a series that aims to inform nuclear facility designers, vendors, operators and State governments about IAEA safeguards, and demonstrates how associated requirements can be considered early in the design phase of a new nuclear facility. This particular publication is applicable to the design of spent nuclear fuel reprocessing plants. Safeguards by design dialogue undertaken early in the design and construction of reprocessing plants, facilitates the implementation of safeguards throughout all the lifecycle stages of the facility. The potential to reduce costs, avoid retrofits and achieve efficiencies both for the operator and for IAEA Member States are important drivers for the early consideration of safeguards in a nuclear facility design project.
This publication is part of a series that aims to inform nuclear facility designers, vendors, operators and State governments about IAEA safeguards, and demonstrates how associated requirements can be considered early in the design phase of a new nuclear facility. This particular publication is applicable to the design and construction of commercial uranium enrichment plants. Safeguards by design dialogue undertaken early in the design and construction of enrichments plants facilitates the implementation of safeguards throughout all the lifecycle stages of the facility. The potential to reduce costs, avoid retrofits and achieve efficiencies both for the operator and for IAEA Member States are important drivers for the early consideration of safeguards in a nuclear facility design project.
