    In countries with no nuclear power programme, this constitutes the main category of radioactive waste, while for countries with a nuclear programme, it represents only per cent of the total volume of radioactive waste. In countries with nuclear weapons, significant amounts of L/ILW as well as high-level waste are generated by the military. @article{osti_, title = {Social issues and challenges in the disposal of nuclear waste}, author = {Easterling, J B and Redmond, R J and Turner, E}, abstractNote = {This paper discusses equity and the perception of fairness as issues equal in importance to technical validity in the development of high-level waste management programs.

    Get this from a library! Too hot to touch: the problem of high-level nuclear waste. [William M Alley; Rosemarie Alley] -- "Today, the issue of waste management is as prominent as reactor safety in the controversies surrounding nuclear power and is particularly topical in the US since the closure of the Yucca. Nuclear materials generate high level waste that is extremely hazardous and capable of harming living organisms and the environment. While low and intermediate level radioactive wastes are being appropriately disposed, high level radioactive waste is still stored at temporary locations awaiting disposal at permanent facilities. The major effort toward long-term high-level nuclear waste disposal has been in the area of depositing in the ground all the dangerous material in some sort of containers. This approach seeks to find a permanent disposal technique so the waste can be left for posterity without any possibility of future generations being at risk.
