MANAGEMENT OF HIGH LEVEL RADIOACTIVE AND TRANSURANIC WASTE IN INDONESIA

Herlan Martono, Gunandjar Gunandjar

Abstract


Indonesia’s current strategy on fuel cycles is open c cle until a couple of decades after the operation of the first Nuclear Power nt (NPP). Therefore, there is no current and future reprocessing activities, so high level radioactive waste will be the spent fuel it self. At present, spent fuel from Research Reactors are re-exported to the origin country, the high level radioactive waste (HLW) are generated from Mo isotope production and radiometallurgy installations activities. Indonesia will assess with particular care the international development in LW management. The future spent fuel or HLW generated will be managed by interim and long term storage eventually, arrangements must be made for deep geological disposal.
