DISPOSAL PRINCIPLES Isotope Production Plants These facilities are often associated with large reactors, and wastes are similar to those generated in Research and Development plants.
To work out a true COST/BENEFIT ratio is thus little better than a dream, and the people responsible for approving a waste management system or a new power station are therefore faced in the last analysis with a value judgment, which is at least to some extent subjective. It is not a scientific decision.

These hazards can be controlled by sealing old workings and general “good house-keeping”, but more particularly by installation of an efficient ventilation system and, where necessary, the use of respirators. The ventilation air contains radioactive material and dust, some of which can be removed if necessary by filtration, but the radon remains.

The end products of the mill are uranium oxide and “tailings”.
