2017 EPRI International Low-Level Waste Conference and Decommissioning Workshop with American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)/EPRI Radwaste Workshop: Call for Abstracts
This annual conference focuses on low-level radioactive waste management at nuclear power plants, low- and intermediate-level liquid and solid radioactive waste operations, and shipping and disposal of radioactive waste. Prospective authors are invited to submit abstracts for original papers.
Nuclear plant decommissioning involves characterizing, staging, packaging, and shipping large quantities of waste—which can have a major impact on project cost and schedule. This report summarizes waste management experiences, strategies, and lessons in the United States and abroad to guide future decommissioning.
