MaraWas: Management of Radioactive Waste

Main objective of the project:
Familiarize students with many aspects of radioactive waste management in different contexts (laboratory, reuse, decontamination, transport, treatment and short and long term management, non nuclear waste monitoring, critical reflections …)

21/11/2016 to 25/11/2016
Expected Outcome: 

Students can perform practical exercises on portal monitoring of waste, reuse of waste and decontamination and radiological monitoring in a nuclear lab experiment. After the demos, facility visits and introduction lectures and exercises, they are able to propose a procedure for a valorisation or treatment for a specific radioactive waste (NORM, medical, industrial,…), a specific nuclear experiment,  a nuclear laboratory or a nuclear transport.

Students can make a critical reflection on the differences in waste managements in a predefined situation.

Thorough knowledge radiation detection and measurement. Basic knowledge of Chemistry. Basic knowledge of EXCEL.
Number of Participants: 
Max. 20
Time Schedule: 

The IC is mainly focused on experimental activities, demonstrations, site and facility visits, introduction lectures, round table.
In order to facilitate the entry of waste management facilities (3months in advance) students should express their interest by the 15th August 2016 and register not later than 1st September 2016 with full ID.
Registered students will obtain hand-outs of the intended experiments and a task for the round table critical reflection on the differences in waste managements in a predefined situation
