"Environment Sustainability Index"-Nuclear Waste Generated
 
January, 2019

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 183 drums in 2017. The reduction rate is 2.6%;189 drums in 2018, The reduction rate is -5.1%. The indicator of the waste reduction tasks are outstanding, and are approaching environmental sustainability. This record would be toward environmental sustainability.
