Annual world nuclear reactor construction / Spent fuel generation

Year: 2005
From collection: Vital Waste Graphics
Author: Philippe Rekacewicz, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Both the volume and the level of radioactivity have to be considered – a large volume of waste with a low-level of radioactivity presents less danger than a smaller amount of waste with a high-level of radioactivity. For example, spent fuel (elements that have been removed from a reactor after use) makes up less than 1% of the volume of radioactive waste, but contains almost 95% of the total radioactivity.
