Nuclear Reactions: The Politics of Opening a Radioactive Waste Disposal Site

Nuclear Reactions: The Politics of Opening a Radioactive Waste Disposal Site Lowest new price: $83.67
Lowest used price: $16.39
List price: $19.95
Author: Chuck McCutcheon
Brand: Brand: University of New Mexico Press

The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP), located beneath the desolate flatlands near Carlsbad in southeastern New Mexico, is the first facility of its kind in the world--the most elaborate and expensive landfill opened to date that permanently houses mankind's deadliest garbage.

The project is intended to entomb, in a salt formation 2,150 feet underground, four decades' worth of protective gloves, clothing, and other items contaminated with plutonium and other radioactive materials used in building nuclear weapons. The nuclear waste--enough to fill more than sixty-five football fields--is sent to WIPP from U.S. Department of Energy sites in Colorado, Idaho, South Carolina, Washington, and elsewhere. The plant is regarded both as a coda to the Cold War legacy of weapons production and as a prototype for future environmental cleanup projects.

Although WIPP has won widespread scientific and political support, it has been a quagmire of conflicting views about national energy policy. Technical and environmental questions dogged it long before being built, and debates over its use have continued since its opening in 1999. This book marks the first effort to trace WIPP's evolution comprehensively and impartially, from its earliest days as the brainchild of a group of local residents eager to create jobs through two decades of scientific studies, political decisions, environmental protests, and court challenges. It includes interviews with and character sketches of politicians, environmentalists, and scientists and explores the lessons that this hotly divisive project can teach us.

Natural Systems for Waste Management and Treatment

Natural Systems for Waste Management and Treatment Lowest new price: $110.00
Lowest used price: $4.18
List price: $55.00
Author: Sherwood C. Reed

Biologically-based systems for handling waste are gathering international attention as a more reliable, less costly alternative to energy intensive mechanical systems, and are being used by increasing numbers of communities and municipalities. The natural process of waste treatment deals with processing waste and wastewater naturally in streams and the soil. The process in wastewater treatment plants is virtually the same process used in treating the material with bacteria only at a more rapid rate. This results in higher energy consumption and more accumulated sludge than the natural process. This edition features recent advances in the use of wetlands and aquatic systems, the treatment of sludges, and other areas in the field of waste management. It also includes current EPA regulations and coverage of small-scale on-site systems.
