Nuclear power is a great technology that produces huge amount of electricity but the nuclear waste coming out of the nuclear reactors, mines of the radioactive substances, nuclear power stations, laboratories etc have become a big head ache for all! As the advancement in nuclear technology is improving simultaneously the wastes are also growing. These wastes are highly radioactive in nature and can harm living creatures badly. A innumerable diseases can cause and even may lead to death if its in contact. So lets see the way to dispose it.
After dealing a lot with these wastes. There are some Safe methods being found out for the waste disposal:
Presently, the nuclear wastes are disposed off by sealing it in
corrosion proof metal containers which are then buried in deep underground in
specially designed deep concrete vaults. The concrete vaults are covered
with the lead to avoid the leakage of the nuclear radiations.It should checked that whether the wastes are disposed in a area which is scarcely populated away from living creatures.
