Strategy for the environmental safety of radiologically dangerous objects

  • E. I. Veselov

A strategy for environmental safety of radiologically dangerous objects is examined for one such object. The steps in performing the work oriented toward environmental safety are shown. The most likely variants for handling radioactive wastes are presented. The technological operations performed to ensure environmental safety of the object are examined. The choice of the final variant for increasing environmental safety is made after economic and environmental evaluation. The strategy developed for ensuring environmental safety can be used to examine other radiologically dangerous objects.
