Abstract
Because of the rapid increase in the use of light-water-cooled nuclear reactors to generate electricity, there is parallel growth in the basic industry that provides enriched uranium fuel for these operations. This industry includes various operations broadly classified as: (1) milling, (2) conversion of uranium oxide (U3O8) to uranium hexafluoride (UF6), (3) enrichment, (4) fuel fabrication, and (5) radioactive material transportation between these facilities. Radioactive waste products are associated with each of the above activities. Part I of this report examines the predominant facilities and operations within these five categories which have the highest potential for environmental impact. The principal purpose of this report is to project what effects the total uranium fuel cycle may have on public health and to indicate where, when, and how standards limiting environmental releases could be effectively applied to mitigate these effects.
