|Abstract:||During 1998-2001, a project on the management of radioactive waste was carried out as part of the NKS programme. The project was called NKS/SOS-3 and was divided into three subprojects:
- SOS-3.1: Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
- SOS-3.2: Intermediate storage
- SOS-3.3: Contamination levels in metals
SOS-3.1 included four EIA seminars on the use of EIA in the Nordic countries. The seminars were held in Norway in 1998, Denmark in 1999, Iceland in 2000 and Finland in 2001. (The last seminar was performed in co-operation with the NKS project SOS-1.) The seminars focused on experiences from EIA procedures for the disposal of radioactive waste, and other experiences from EIA processes.
SOS-3.2 included a study on intermediate storage of radioactive waste packages in the Nordic countries. An overview of experiences was compiled and recommendations were made regarding different intermediate storage options, as well as control and supervision.
SOS-3.3 included investigation of contamination levels in steel, aluminium and magnesium samples from smelting facilities, and an overview of current practice for clearance in the Nordic countries.|
