Transcript of Sanitary Engineer

Low level nuclear waste is waste that includes material from highly radioactive parts of nuclear reaction. We have to clean up chemical waste caused by chemical reactions that are dumped into lakes and rivers by companies and people A transuranic is an atom with an atomic number that is greater than 92. Low level nuclear waste is easy to dispose of, has a low half-life, and is an isotope High level nuclear waste can have a half-life of over 100,000 years High level nuclear waste is the core of a nuclear weapon. The space for the first nuclear fission reactor was a squash. DID YOU KNOW?!?!?! The water is used to cool the used fuel and acts as a shield for the workers. the radioactive waste remains locked inside the uranium pellets.
We deal with the waste in diffferent ways depending on the waste we are trying to clean up. SANIT-ARY ENGI-NEER! A fission by-product is the outcome of splitting an atom sanitary engineers cleaning a mess in Japan
