Radioactive waste; delivery

All low and intermediate level radioactive waste from research, medicine and industry generated on the territory of the Free State of Bavaria has to be handed over.

Description

According to the Atomic Energy Act (§ 9a AtG), the Länder have to establish Land collection centres for the acceptance and interim storage of radioactive waste.

For this purpose, the Free State of Bavaria has founded the Sammelstelle Bayern für radioaktive Stoffe GmbH (GRB). The company has all the necessary permits, equipment and storage facilities in Mitterteich.
The waste comes mainly from hospitals, doctors' surgeries and research institutes. This mainly involves contaminated protective clothing, syringes, cleaning materials and no longer usable radiation sources, test radiation sources and test equipment.

The Bavarian State Collection Centre takes over radioactive waste,

  • which a party obliged to deliver has to deliver to it pursuant to Section 5 para. 4 of the Nuclear Waste Management Ordinance (AtEV) and which complies with the provisions of its acceptance conditions (see "Further links") and
  • whose delivery has been approved by the competent authority pursuant to Section 5 para 5 of the Nuclear Waste Management Ordinance (AtEV).

If the radioactive waste contains "nuclear material" in the sense of EURATOM Regulation 302/2005 of 08.02.2005, delivery of this radioactive waste to the Bavarian State Collection Centre is possible subject to approval by the Bavarian State Collection Centre and may require a separate agreement. "Nuclear material" in the sense of EURATOM Regulation 302/2005 is: Natural uranium, depleted uranium, enriched uranium, thorium, plutonium.

The radioactive waste taken over by the Bavarian State Collection Centre is checked for the possibility of harmless recycling. If this shows that reuse is possible and economically justifiable according to the state of the art in science and technology, the radioactive waste is recycled as residual material.

In accordance with Section 5 (6) of the Nuclear Waste Management Ordinance (AtEV), the State Collection Centre generally transfers the radioactive waste temporarily stored at its site to a federal facility for the safekeeping and final disposal of radioactive waste.

Prerequisites

The waste producer has a licence to handle radioactive materials in accordance with the Radiation Protection Ordinance (StrlSchV until 2018) or the Radiation Protection Act (StrlSchG from 2019).

Certain requirements must be met for the disposal of radioactive waste via the Bavarian State Collection Point (see "Acceptance conditions" under "Further links").

Procedure

The delivery of radioactive waste must be applied for in writing by the deliverer to the Bavarian State Collection Point by means of the application and consignment note and the form for the material description of the waste. Both forms must be completed in full and signed for each waste container and sent to the Bavarian State Collection Centre.

On the basis of these documents, the Bavarian State Collection Point checks whether the requirements for acceptance of the radioactive waste are met and informs the supplier of the delivery or collection date and details of the delivery.

If the Bavarian State Collection Centre is unable to accept radioactive waste applied for, it informs the applicant and, if possible, provides information on other disposal routes.

When transporting radioactive waste, the relevant legal regulations must be observed, in particular the Ordinance on the Transport of Dangerous Goods by Road, Rail and Inland Waterways (GGVSEB). A collection service is offered for the delivery of radioactive waste to the Bavarian State Collection Point.
