Radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel management in Australia

Radioactive waste disposal Nuclear energy Australia

This chronology outlines the history of radioactive waste management in Australia. It documents the drawn-out policy processes associated with the management of Australia's small amount of radioactive waste material. It also outlines some of the key stages in the process of replacing Australia's only nuclear reactor - the research reactor at Lucas Heights near Sydney. This chronology does not address the history of wastes associated with uranium mining.
