Abstract

Throughout the Department of Energy in-house laboratories and externally funded efforts, there is a series of programs aimed at the development of technology for the conversion of radioactive wastes to appropriate forms and for the placement of these materials into repositories in the earth’s surface. To date this methodology development has been conducted largely without the benefit of officially approved or generally accepted criteria, goals or objectives. Agreed upon criteria for the disposal of radioactive waste materials are needed to ensure protection of the biosphere from undue risks.
