Título: A strategy to reuse the radioactive sources storage at radioactive waste depositories
Autor(es): Silva, Maria Isabel Barbosa da

Resumo: Until now, all the Brazilian’s Radioactives Wastes depositories were only able to insurance the care of radioactives sources that were useless. To do that, a management policy is applied that recommend the waste treatment trying to reduce it’s size, if it is possible, so that waste can be storage inside the depository. However, what we are seeing in the last few years, even in the field of industries as much as in the field of medicine is an increase of the radioactive materials´ use. So one can understand that the waste collection is increasing at the same proportion, forcing the institutions that have Radioactive Waste depositories build new facilities, biggers than the old ones. Most of the time, when those facilities are completed, their capabilities are restricted. At that moment is easy to see the need of a new strategy that has to be included in the management policy that encourage the radioactive source reuse, minimizing the increase waste collection effects. This paper describes one kind of strategy that can be use to recycling those materials. Although it seems to be simple, it’s really a hard work process because it has to create a new routine and some times a different philosophy even among the workers and researchers in the nuclear field. But everyone can understand the importance of that new strategy because it’s straight related with the extension of the radioactive material useful life and the reduction of the time that it can spend at the depository.
