A risk-based waste clearance concept for the D&D program

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

Recycling and reusing radioactively contaminated metals could be a viable alternative to D&D (decontamination and decommissioning) waste minimization. Release of such metals under the current international dose guideline would result in annual public risk levels of less than 10{sup -6} for an individual and 10{sup -2} for society. Methodology and data are available to strongly support a conservative yet practical analysis. It is feasible, therefore, to address the issues and to derive risk-based standards for the unrestricted release of radioactive scrap metal that are designed to prevent undue risk to the public.
