5.3.6 RAW generation


Amounts of solid and liquid radioactive waste generated are monitored aiming at a reduction of their generation. Reduction of the volumes of waste will also reduce the demands on their storage, transportation, and disposal, as well as their environmental impacts.

Figs.5.3.9 and 5.3.10 show amounts of RAW generated at SE-EBO.

Since so far, solid RAW generated at SE, a.s. NI are not processed to final form or transported outside the NI site, the statistics includes all solid RAW that were generated at the corresponding NI for the period of reference. For liquid RAW, their total volume in m3 generated during the operation of the power plant for the said period of time, converted to thickened quantities at 120 g/l.

As seen from the diagrams, the generation of both solid and liquid wastes from NPP Bohunice V-1is stabilized during 1999 and 2000. The generation of solid RAW at NPP V-1 was significantly influenced by the ongoing works on gradual upgrading. There was a reduction in the generation of solid and liquid RAO at NPP Bohunice V-2 during 1999 and 2000, reflecting the systematic approach to work with RAW as described in the QA directive „Minimaizing of RAW Generation“.

At Mochovce, solid waste is stored in steel dwarf palettes. The total capacity is 640 palettes, as of 31 December, 2000, 190 palettes were filled with wastes, representing 28 % of the storage capacity.

The total storage capacity of 4 tanks of active concentrate is 2200 m3. A total of 279 m3 active concentrate were generated last year. During the three years of operation, one tank (550 m3) has been filled and the second tank contains 343 m3 concentrate.
