[1] Ojovan M. I., Lee W. E., Kalmykov S. N. An introduction to nuclear waste immobilisation. — PO BOX 211, AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 1000 AE: PO BOX 211, AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS, 1000 AE, 2019. — 497 p. The first edition of this book was published in 2005 and was based on the authors’ experience of working in both the nuclear industry and academia. The second edition, published in 2013, was an improved version accounting for the progress made and adding new chapters to expand the scope of the book on subjects such as characterisation, storage and transportation. This third edition is a further step forward in that while keeping the basic structure and approach (that follows the lifecycle of waste!) gives further updated and improved content. We have added two new chapters—on power and non-power use of nuclear energy that add value revealing potential sources of operational and decommissioning nuclear waste. We also include two separate chapters on disposal performance and safety because these activities have become much more significant. In addition, all chapters have been amended to account for new International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) regulatory guidance, and for technology progress and details needed to understand in depth the core of nuclear waste activities at all stages of nuclear waste life, from generation through processing and storage to final disposal, and evaluation of “life after burial”; for example the performance and safety of disposal sites. We have also accounted for the international perspective, as one of the authors (MIO) has worked for the last 7 years in the Department of Nuclear Energy of the IAEA while the other authors (WEL and SNK) were based in an academic environment and continue to be involved in many national and international nuclear waste projects and activities. The IAEA, which is the world's central intergovernmental forum for scientific and technical cooperation in the nuclear field working for the safe, secure and peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology, has invested a lot of effort in eLearning courses, including Spent Fuel and Radioactive Waste Management, Decommissioning and Environmental Remediation (see IAEA 2018; Learning Management System; http://elearning.iaea.org/m2/ course/index.php?categoryid560). The course is available through a clickable map and concisely describes nuclear waste management (Fig. 1) with the details to be found in this book as well as in references and bibliographies given herewith. We believe that the third edition is a much improved version of our initial monograph and will be useful both as a reliable reference and a learning handbook.
