Abstract

The disposal of radioactive waste; i.e., its safe, longterm isolation from the biosphere, is a key problem of the peaceful uses of nuclear energy. The questions related to this aspect presently are in the forefront of public discussion about nuclear power. Some of the reasons for this pronounced public interest are:
  1. a.

    the present situation in this field, which is characterized by delays in the provision of sufficient reprocessing capacities and waste repositories

     
  2. b.

    problems of public acceptance of the storage and disposal of nuclear waste

     
  3. c.

    legislative procedures that link the licensing of new nuclear power plants to the solution of the waste problem

     
  4. d.

    political aspects concentrating on the question concerning the best method of waste disposal from the non-proliferation point of view
