The overall objective of radioactive waste management is to deal with radioactive waste in a manner that protects human health and the environment, now and in the future, and without imposing undue burdens on future generations [1]. Radioactive waste management. Professor Lehto's main research areas have been nuclear waste management and disposal, and environmental radioactivity studies. He has published scientific and technical papers and patents, and also published a book on the principles of radioactivity and radiochemistry in Finnish.

Deep Geological Disposal of Radioactive Waste presents a critical review of designing, siting, constructing and demonstrating the safety and environmental impact of deep repositories for radioactive is structured to provide a broad perspective of this multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary topic: providing enough detail for a non-specialist to understand the fundamental principles.   Historically, radioactive waste management policy was expressed in the White Paper “Review of Radioactive Waste Management Policy, Final Conclusions, Cm”.

  The safe management of nuclear and radioactive wastes is a subject that has recently received considerable recognition due to the huge volume of accumulative wastes and the increased public awareness of the hazards of these wastes. This book aims to cover the practice and research efforts that are currently conducted to deal with the technical difficulties in different radioactive waste. Research Waste Management › Laboratory Waste Laboratory waste may disposed of in recycling, trash, laboratory glassware disposal boxes, sharps containers, or regulated medical waste boxes; it may need to be submitted to the Chemical Waste Program or Radioactive Waste .

It is the by-product of millions of medical procedures each year, industrial and agricultural applications that use radiation and nuclear reactors that generate around 10 % of global electricity. A waste management hierarchy based on the most environmentally sound criteria favours waste prevention/minimisation, waste re-use, recycling, and composting.

In many countries, a large percentage of waste cannot presently be re-used, re-cycled or composted and the main disposal methods are landfilling and incineration.
