The management of high activity nuclear wastes (vol 2: military wastes)
Following on from a first volume devoted to nuclear wastes from civilian installations, the second volume of the report is concerned with the nuclear wastes produced by national defence programmes, and the effects of the nuclear tests carried out in Polynesia. While the present-day management of military nuclear wastes does not appear to pose any intractable problems, the lack of any final storage solution is likely to lead to difficulties in the longer term. Accordingly this report recalls that it is important that the arrangements and timetable laid down by the Act of 30 December 1991 on research into the management of high activity nuclear wastes should be applied rigorously and fully, and that appropriate methods for the definitive storage of other categories of radioactive wastes should be actively sought.
