Abstract

The United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority operates establishments in locations ranging from the South of England to the North coast of Scotland. The functions of these establishments include the production and processing of nuclear fuels, the production of electricity and isotopes for commercial sale, the development of new types of reactors and the conduct of research in all the associated fields. The Authority therefore has a wide variety of wastes to deal with and they arise in a number of different places. The main high-activity wastes, both liquid and solid, are stored in special tanks and containers, while the low-activity large-volume liquid wastes are released in carefully controlled amounts to the sea or to rivers. Low-and medium- activity solid wastes are buried in selected areas where there will be no interference with water supplies, or sunk on to the sea bed. The paper summarizes the methods in use and gives typical quantities of liquid and solid waste arising annually for disposal by the various methods.

(author) [French] Les divers etablissements de VAtomic Energy Authority du Royaume-Uni sont echelonnes entre le sud de l'Angleterre et la cote septentrionale de l'Ecosse. Ces etablissements sont notamment charges de la fabrication et du traitement des combustibles nucleaires, de la production d'electricite et de la production d'isotopes a des fins commerciales, de la mise au point de nouveaux modeles de reacteurs et des recherches effectuees dans tous les domaines connexes. L' Atomic Energy Authority doit donc proceder, en plusieurs points du territoire, a l'elimination de toute une serie de dechets radioactifs d'origines diverses. Les principaux dechets, liquides et solides, a radioactivite elevee sont enfermes dans des reservoirs et recipients speciaux, tandis que les volumineux dechets liquides a faible radioactivite sont evacues, par quantites soigneusement controlees, dans la mer ou les cours d'eau. Les dechets solides, de radioactivite faible ou moyenne, sont enfouis dans des emplacements specialement choisis - ou ils n'ont aucune possibilite de contaminer les ressources en eau - ou noyes au fond de la mer. Le memoire donne un apercu des diverses methodes employees et indique quelles sont les quantites de dechets liquides et solides qui doivent etre eliminees, tous les ans, suivant chacune de ces methodes. (author) [Spanish] La United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority tiene en funcionamiento instalaciones situadas desde el sur de Inglaterra hasta la costa norte de Escocia. Las funciones de estas instalaciones incluyen la produccion y elaboracion de combustibles nucleares, la produccion de electricidad e isotopos con fines comerciales, el estudio de nuevos tipos de reactores y la investigacion en todos los campos afines. Por lo tanto, la Authority tiene que resolver el problema de la evacuacion de desechos muy variados que se producen en una gran cantidad de lugares distintos. Los' desechos principales de alto nivel radiactivo, tanto liquidos como solidos, son almacenados en tanques y recipientes especiales, mientras que los desechos liquidos de bajo nivel y de gran volumen son evacuados en cantidades exactamente controladas hacia el mar o los rios. Los desechos solidos de nivel medio o bajo son enterrados en zonas seleccionadas donde no podran entrar en contacto con los suministros de agua, o son hundidos en el fondo del mar. La memoria resume los diversos sistemas utilizados y da cantidades tipicas de los desechos liquidos y solidos que se producen anualmente y que son evacuados por dichos sistemas.

Zhidkie othody s nizkoj aktivnost'ju otvodjatsja v more ili v reki, prichem kolichestvo otvodimyh othodov tshhatel'no kontrolirujutsja. Othody v tverdom vide, imejushhie nizkuju i srednjuju aktivnost', zahoronjajutsja v special'nyh rajonah v grunt ili na dne morja.
