Quantities and types of radioactive waste declared

Are we moving in the right direction? Published by the Norwegian Environment Agency

In order to establish the origin and location of radioactive waste, Norway introduced a declaration requirement for radioactive waste in 2011. In Norway, radioactive waste originates from petroleum activities, hospitals, universities and research institutions. The largest amount of waste is radioactive soil and rock masses, most of which is alum shale.

With data from just a few years, it is difficult to provide conclusive assessments of trends.
