Radioactive isotope, nuclear fuel material and radiation generators are utilized in research institutes, universities, hospitals, private enterprises, etc. As a result, various low-level radioactive wastes (hereinafter referred to as non-nuclear radioactive wastes) are produced. Disposal site for non-nuclear radioactive wastes have not been settled yet and those wastes are stored in storage facilities of each operator for a long period. The Advanced Volume Reduction Facilities (AVRF) are built to produce waste packages so that they satisfy requirements for shallow underground disposal. In the AVRF, low-level beta-gamma solid radioactive wastes produced in the Nuclear Science Research Institute are mainly treated. To produce waste packages meeting requirements for disposal safely and efficiently, it is necessary to cut large radioactive wastes into pieces of suitable size and segregate those depending on their types of material. This report summarizes activities of pretreatment to dispose of non-nuclear radioactive wastes in the AVRF.

Satoyama, Tomonori; Nanri, Tomohiro; Kishimoto, Katsumi

Hoken Butsuri, 49(4), p.180 - 189, 2014/12

JAEA planned to apply the clearance system to slightly contaminated concrete debris with radionuclides, which was generated from the modification of the JRR-3. The modification work was conducted from 1985 to 1990 and the generated concrete debris has been stored as radioactive waste in interim storage facilities. JAEA established procedures for measuring and evaluating the radioactivity concentration of sored concrete debris. In 2008, the authority approved these procedures for clearance. Since 2009, JAEA have been measuring and evaluating the radioactivity concentration of concrete debris, using the approved procedures. By the end of 2012, the authority had confirmed the correctness of our measurement and evaluation results on about 2,600 tons of concrete debris. About 1,800 tons of those cleared concrete were recycled to flat surface subsidence in the NSRI caused by the Great East Japan Earthquake, and also used as base material to construct new buildings and parking lots.

In the modification activities of JRR-3, a large volume of extremely low-level radioactive concrete debris were generated from dismantling of concrete structure around reactor body during one-piece removal of reactor body. These concrete debris are stored in the waste storage facility NL of the Nuclear Science Research Institute. The applicability of clearance to concrete debris generated from the modification activities of JRR-3 was examined as waste measures in the Nuclear Science Research Institute. First, generated place, amount of volume and radioactivity of concrete debris in the waste storage facility NL were surveyed from records in the modification of JRR-3 and data sheets of radioactive waste stored in the waste storage facility. Next, the radioactivity of samples taken from concrete debris stored in the waste storage facility NL was measured, and distribution of those radioactivity concentration was investigated to evaluate the contamination situation. In addition, activated contamination situation of concrete structure was evaluated by activated calculation. As a result, radioactivity of concrete debris was enough lower than clearance levels, so it was found that concrete debris in the waste storage facility NL was able to treat as clearance materials.

Revaluation to activation activity of reactor evaluated at the notification of dismantling submitted in 1997 was carried out in JRR-2 where decommissioning was advanced now. In the revaluation, estimation accuracy on neutron streaming at various horizontal experimental tubes was improved by applying 3 dimensional model to neutron transport calculation that had been carried out by 2 dimensional model, and calculating with TORT. As the result, excessive overestimations on horizontal experimental tubes and biological shield that had greatly contributed to total activation activity in evaluation at the notification of dismantling was revised, sum of their activation activities in the revaluation decreased to 1/18(case after 1 year from the permanent shutdown of reactor) of evaluation at the notification of dismantling, and the structural materials that had large activation activity were changed. By the above, it was shown that introducing 3 dimensional model was effective in evaluation on activation activity of the research reactor that had a lot of various experimental tubes.

Japan Research Reactor No.2(JRR-2), heavy water moderated and cooled tank type research reactor with maximum thermal power of 10MW,was operated for over 36 years, and was permanently shut down in December, 1996. In 1997, decommissioning plan was submitted to the STA, and dismantling was begun. Decommissioning program of JRR-2 is divided into 4 phases. Phase 1, 2 had already been completely finished without any trouble. Furthermore, the phase 3 was also finished in February, 2004 as planned. On exposure of worker in phase 1, 2 and 3, it was achieved to control lower than the estimate. On exposure of worker in phase 1, 2 and 3, it was achieved to control lower than the estimate. Reactor will be removed in phase 4 by one piece removal technique. The reactor building is planned to use effectively as a hot experimental facilities after decommissioning. The decommissioning plan was changed that the reactor would be kept in safety storage.

The Japan Research Reactor No.1 (JRR-1) that was constructed first in Japan was permanently shut down after operation from 1957 to 1968. At present, the reactor part is in safe store conditions. The JRR-1 facility is being used as an exhibition room for the time being, and will be dismantled in the future. In consideration of future dismantling of the facility, the radioactive inventory in reactor part was calculated using computer codes that are Two-Dimensional Discrete Ordinates Transport Code (DORT) and Oak Ridge Isotope Generation and Depletion Code (ORIGEN-MD). The average concentration of radioactivity is estimated to be 6.40$$times$$$$10^{5}$$ Bq/g in the core tank as of April, 2002. It is also expected that the low level waste (LLW) weights approximately 400kg and very low level waste (VLLW) weights approximately 14,000kg, and the waste which doesn't need to deal as a radioactive material weights approximately 250,000kg.

The decommissioning plan of the Japan Research reactor No2(JRR-2), decommissioning activities until the first half of phase-3, radioactive wastes and exposure dose of workers are described in this report. Since the first criticality in October 1960, JRR-2 had been operated about 36 years for various experiments. However, JRR-2 was permanent shutdown in December 1996 based on JAERI's long term plan, and the decommissioning of the JRR-2 was started in August 1997. Decommissioning of the JRR-2 was planed for 11 years from 1997 to 2007 and the program was divided into 4 phases. The decommissioning activities of the phase-1, phase-2 and the first half of phase-3 had already completed as planned in March 1998, February 2000, March 2002, respectively. The decommissioning activities of the later half of Phase-3 (dismantling of the reactor cooling systems) are carrying out at present time with planed 2002 and 2003 fiscal years.
