Abstract:
The decommissioning of nuclear power stations will lead to the production of a number of contaminated components. The materials produced will consist of process and structural wasteforms. Before this waste can be disposed it will be necessary to obtain a full inventory of those radionuclides contained in those wastes. This will be necessary to ensure that the waste is handled in a suitable manner and that full information is available so that reliable risk assessment can be carried out on the proposed disposal site. A number of radionuclides have been highlighted as significant in terms if their halflife, terrestrial mobility and predicted levels in decommissioning wastes. A selection of these radionuclides have been investigated, and methods developed for their determination in concrete. It was a requirement of this work that the methods developed were robust and that the minimum detectable amount was below that of the de minimis of O.4Bq g-1.
