Screening life cycle assessment models developed to investigate hypothetical
disposal and recycling options for the Windscale Advanced Gas-cooled Reactor
heat exchangers were used to generate more complex models addressing the
main UK radioactive metals inventory. Both studies show there are significant
environmental advantages in the metals recycling promoted by the current low
level waste disposal policies, strategies and plans. Financial benefits from current metals treatment options are supported and offer even greater benefits when applied to the UK radioactive metals inventory as a whole.
