Decommissioning of nuclear power plants
A prerequisite for the start of decommissioning work
is that the nuclear fuel, coolant and the radioactive process waste
are removed from the plant. Thus, the original activity inventory is
reduced to a very great extent compared to the activity contained in
the activated and contaminated components. This residual activity is
then mostly present in solid form and amounts after one year to less
than one percent of the activity inventory of a plant in operation.
Depending on the individual circumstances, three main decommissioning
variants exist: safe enclosure, partial removal with safe enclosure
and complete removal.
