5.3.6 Radioactive Waste Production (RAW)


The Production of RAW and their subsequent processing and disposal are at the foreground of ÚJD's interest. An in-depth inspection was conducted by ÚJD in 1997 focusing on keeping of records, storage and subsequent processing and disposal of RAW at SE-EBO. The conclusion of the inspection was that contractors have to be obliged by contracts, and incentives have to be provided to minimize RAW production during the performance of works on the primary circuit. Volumes of liquid and solid RAW generated during the operation of the individual SE-EBO units within 1990 - 1997 are shown in the diagrams below.

 

It is evident from the above diagrams that the total RAW generation is higher at Bohunice V-1 than at Bohunice V-2 units. The increased generation of solid and liquid RAW at Bohunice V-1 units in 1992 and 1993 as well as within 1996 - 1997 was due to the Small Reconstruction and/or to extended general overhauls of units 1 and 2 during Gradual Reconstruction. Extensive adjustments were done at the primary circuit equipment during the outages, connected with increased generation of solid RAW.
