A poster submitted in ENG 207 for the Fall 2016 semester.
In modern times, the use of nuclear energy has increased due to the depletion of petroleum and fossil fuels. However, the nuclear power plants produce hazardous nuclear waste that adversely affects the environment.These wastes are classified by their radioactive contamination level: High level Waste (HLW), Intermediate-Level Waste (ILW), Low-level Waste (LLW). HLW and ILW are efficiently stored in deep grounds; however, LLW is stored in shallow landfills which is risky. Therefore, only LLW is used in this project.
