Description: Radioactive waste (above all highly radioactive wastes from nuclear
installations) caused by research, medicine and technology must be
disposed of safely. However both the strategies disputed for the
disposal of radioactive waste as well as concrete proposals for
choosing a location for final waste disposal are highly
debatable.
An appropriate disposal must conform to both complex, technical
requirements and fulfill the radio-biological conditions to
appropriately protect man and nature. Ethical, legal and social
conditions must also be considered. An interdisciplinary team from
various, relevant fields compiled the current status-quo and… more…
