      The majority of radioactive waste is "low-level waste", meaning it contains low levels of radioactivity per mass or volume. The radiation from this type of waste is protected by use of protective clothing, but still dangerous radioactive contamination occurs in a human body through ingestion, inhalation, absorption, or . The report focuses on the management and regulation of post-fission radioactive waste generated in the U.S. This includes so-called high-level (HL) and transuranic contaminated low-level (TRU) wastes. In the commercial nuclear power industry, the source of post-fission radioactive waste is the spent fuel discharged from reactors used to generate. Facts. Discussion. Key Phrases. Rules. Pl New York.
