Abstract

The paper summarizes the main policies adopted for the management of fission product effluents and briefly describes the essential technical features of the stainless steel storage installations (in acid medium) used in France, giving a breakdown of the costs involved. The dependence of these costs on the activity of the solutions stored and on their heat release is shown. The second part of the paper discusses the cost of storage in terms of feasible tank size. The optimum size for such tanks and the rate at which they are placed in service are determined in relation to the characteristics of the fission products to be stored and to the respective capacities of the installations for processing irradiated natural uranium. It is shown that although storage costs depend on the assumptions made regarding the useful life of installations, rates of interest and operating costs, optimum policy decisions (as to size and rate of entry into service) are independent of these assumptions, being determined solely by the variation in the cost of tanks, according to size. These are the factors which enter into the optimized cost of storing these effluents indefinitely. In the third part, this method of indefinite storage is compared  More>>

(author) [French] Apres avoir rappele les principales politiques de gestion le plus souvent envisagees pour les produits de fission, le memoire decrit sommairement les caracteristiques techniques essentielles des installations de stockage en acier inoxydable (en milieu acide) utilisees en France et la structure des couts de ces installations. U montre la sensibilite de ces couts a l'activite des solutions stockees et a leur degagement de chaleur. Dans une deuxieme partie, les auteurs examinent leur cout de stockage, selon la taille des reservoirs pouvant etre construits, et on determine la taille et la cadence optimales de leur mise en service, compte tenu des caracteristiques des produits de fission a stocker et pour diverses capacites de l'usine de traitement de l'uranium naturel irradie. Ils montrent que, si le cout de stockage depend des hypotheses faites sur la duree de vie des installations, le taux d'interet, les frais d'exploitation, le choix de la politique optimale par contre (tailles et cadences de mise en service) est independant de ces hypotheses et n'est lie qu'a la loi de variation du cout des reservoirs selon leur taille. On obtient ainsi le cout optimise de stockage indefini de ces effluents. Dans une troisieme partie, les auteurs comparent a cette solution du stockage indefini d'autres politiques possibles de gestion des produits de fission: vitrification et separation du Cs et du Sr. Ils situent economiquement ces diverses alternatives et esquissent des solutions possibles a long terme. (author) [Spanish] Despues de recordar las principales practicas administrativas que suelen aplicarse a los productos de fision, los autores exponen sucintamente las caracteristicas tecnicas esenciales de las instalaciones de almacenamiento en acero inoxidable (en medio acido) utilizadas en Francia y analizan la estructura de sus costos. Muestran hasta que punto esos costos dependen de la radiactividad de las soluciones almacenadas y del calor que desprenden. En la segunda parte de la memoria se examina el costo del almacenamiento segun las dimensiones de los depositos que pueden construirse, se determinan las dimensiones optimas de estos depositos y se indica el ritmo mas conveniente para su puesta en servicio teniendo en cuenta las caracteristicas de los productos de fision que es preciso almacenar y las diversas capacidades de las plantas de tratamiento de uranio natural irradiado. Se demuestra que si bien el costo del almacenamiento depende de algunas hipotesis (duracion de la vida util de las instalaciones, tipo de interes y gastos de explotacion) la eleccion de la politica Optima (dimensiones y ritmo de la puesta en servicio) es en cambio independiente de estas hipotesis y esta unicamente ligada a la ley de variacion del costo de los depositos en funcion de sus dimensiones. Se obtiene, asi, el costo optimizado del almacenamiento de los efluentes por tiempo indefinido. En la tercera parte se compara la solucion del almacenamiento indefinido con otras posibilidades: vitrificacion y separacion del Cs y del Sr. Los autores analizan esas posibilidades desde el punto de vista economico e indican algunas soluciones a largo plazo. (author) [Russian] Posle upominanija osnovnyh metodov obrashhenija s produktami delenija v zhidkom vide, daetsja kratkoe opisanie osnovnyh tehnicheskih harakteristik primenjaemyh vo Francii ustanovok dlja hranenija iz nerzhavejushhej stali (v kisloj srede) i struktury stoimosti jetih ustanovok. Pokazyvaetsja, kak jeta sistema zavisit ot aktivnosti nahodjashhihsja na hranenii rastvorov i ot vydelenija imi tepla. Vo vtoroj chasti issleduetsja stoimost' ih hranenija v zavisimosti ot razmerov rezervuarov, kotorye mogut byt' postroeny, i opredeljajutsja razmery i maksimal'nye predely ih ispol'zovanija s uchetom harakteristik podlezhashhih hraneniju produktov delenija i razlichnyh vozmozhnostej zavoda po pererabotke obluchennogo prirodnogo urana. Pokazyvaetsja, chto esli stoimost' hranenija predpolozhitel'no zavisit ot sroka sluzhby ustanovok, procenta na kapital i jekspluatacionnyh rashodov, to vybor optimal'nogo metoda nezavisim ot jetogo i svjazan lish' s zakonom izmenenija stoimosti jetih rezervuarov s uchetom ih razmerov. Takim putem poluchajut optimizirovannuju stoimost' beskonechnogo hranenija zhidkih produktov. V tret'ej chasti s jetim resheniem beskonechnogo hranenija sravnivajutsja drugie vozmozhnye mery obrashhenija s produktami delenija: osteklovyvanie i vydelenie cezija i stroncija. Obsuzhdaetsja jekonomika razlichnyh metodov hranenija i namechajutsja vozmozhnye reshenija problemy na dlitel'nyj srok. (author)}
