Atomic Energy Council (AEC) has been taking many regulatory activities and the strategy for the sake of reducing the generation of nuclear waste from NPPs. After AEC’s and Taipower’s endeavors, the nuclear waste generation continuously decreases year by year. The total amount of low level solidified waste generation from three NPPs is 148 drums in 2019, the reduction rate is -1.2%;172 drums in 2020, the reduction rate is -2.3%;159 drums in 2021, the reduction rate is 12.4%. The indicator of the waste reduction tasks are outstanding, and are approaching environmental sustainability. This record would be toward environmental sustainability.
