Abstract:

"Disposal of the wastes produced by the peaceful applications of nuclear energy is commonly perceived as one of the most complex environmental problems of our time. Evidence of this concern is seen in the difficulties encountered in selecting suitable sites for final repositories for this waste - difficulties that critically affect the whole issue of the social acceptance of nuclear energy.

Nevertheless, science and technology are able today to provide safe and reliable solutions for the disposal of nuclear waste, much more so than for any other hazardous by product of industrial activities."

"This book tries to explain the origin of the negative public perception of nuclear energy and introduces the most significant worldwide technical achievements in nuclear waste disposal."--Jacket.
