This report provides detailed information on the handling, processing and storage techniques most widely used and recommended for radioactive waste arising from non-nuclear fuel activities. Such radioactive materials arise from the application of nuclear techniques in industrial research, medicine, agriculture and education. Although the report is intended primarily for developing countries that produce limited amounts of radioactive waste, it also reflects the practices applied in countries with larger programmes of nuclear applications. The report focuses on the most simple, affordable and reliable techniques and discusses their advantages and limitations.
