The objectives of this publication are to identify and critically review the criteria to be considered while selecting waste management technologies; summarize evaluate rank and compare the different technical solutions; and offer a systematic approach for selecting the best matching solution. This publication covers the management of radioactive waste from all nuclear operations including waste generated from research reactors power reactors and nuclear fuel cycle activities including high level waste (HLW) arising from reprocessing and spent nuclear fuel declared as waste (SFW) as well as low level waste (LLW) and intermediate level waste (ILW) arising from the production and use of radionuclides in industry agriculture medicine education and research.
