This category is about the technical aspects of spent nuclear fuel, management, reprocessing and disposal.
Spent nuclear fuel is used fuel from nuclear reactors at commercial power plants, research reactors, government facilities, or from the nuclear medicine.
These materials contain highly radioactive elements, such as cesium, strontium, technetium, and neptunium.
Some of these elements will remain radioactive for a few years, while others will be radioactive for millions of years.
Nuclear waste can be generally classified as either low level or high level radioactive waste. Low level nuclear waste usually includes material used to handle the radioactive parts of nuclear apparatus and waste from nuclear medicine. High level waste includes the fission products activated in nuclear reactors or in accelerators.
