This chapter describes the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant (NPP) accident starting with the reactors' location and sequence of events which caused the accident. The amount of radioactive materials released and its composition, dispersion of radioactive materials over land and sea, contamination effects on food and the environment and radiation effects on human health are all addressed along with the current clean-up programme and future plans. However, it is expected that it will take 30-40. years to decommission the damaged facilities. © 2013 Woodhead Publishing Limited All rights reserved.

Progress in the management of China's radioactive waste (RAW) is described, including waste generation, waste management policy, and current practices in regional disposal of low and intermediate level waste (LILW) and development of a geological disposal facility for hight level waste (HlW). © 2013 Woodhead Publishing Limited All rights reserved.
Jackson HF, Lee WE, 2012, Properties and characteristics of zrc, Vol: 2, Pages: 339-372
Zirconium carbide (ZrC) possesses a combination of thermodynamic, thermal, and mechanical properties that are promising for nuclear fuel applications requiring high-temperature resistance and structural integrity. This chapter reviews the literature evaluating ZrC properties as affected by temperature, as well as across the wide range of stoichiometry reported for ZrCx (x ≈ 0-0.5). Studies to date of the performance of ZrC under neutron and ion irradiation are summarized. © 2012 Elsevier Ltd All rights reserved.

Gilbert M, Davoisne C, Stennett MC, et al., 2011, Krypton and helium irradiation damage in yttria-stabilised zirconia, Materials Research Society Symposium Proceedings, Vol: 1298, Pages: 197-202, ISSN: 0272-9172
A candidate matrix material for inert matrix fuel (IMF), yttria-stabilised zirconia (YSZ) has been doped with Nd3+ as a surrogate for Pu 3+. To simulate and assess the effects of fission gas accommodation and alpha decay on the microstructure, samples of (Y0.1425,Nd 0.05,Zr0.8075)O1.904 have been irradiated with 2 MeV 36Kr+ ions, at fluences of 1×1014 and 5×1015 cm-2, and 200 keV 4He + ions at fluences of 1×1014, 5×10 15 and 1×1017 cm-2. Analysis by transmission electron microscopy (TEM) of thin sections prepared by focussed ion beam (FIB) milling revealed damage was only observed at the highest 36Kr+ and 4He+ fluences. Monte Carlo simulations using the TRIM code showed that it is only at these fluences that the level of atomic displacements was sufficient to result in observable defect cluster formation within the material. © 2011 Materials Research Society.
Ojovan MI, Lee WE, 2011, Glassy and Glass Composite Nuclear Wasteforms, Advances in Materials Science for Environmental and Nuclear Technology II, Pages: 203-216, ISBN: 9781118060001
© 2011 The American Ceramic Society. The current status of vitrification techniques for immobilisation of nuclear wastes in glasses and glass composite materials (GCM) are reviewed. One-stage and two-stage processes are described along with the compositions and properties of the resulting glassy wasteforms. Techniques for assessing wasteform durability are discussed along with the mechanisms of corrosion on contact with groundwater.
