Recycling/Disposal Alternatives for Depleted Uranium Wastes( )

1 edition published in 1981 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

All depleted uranium (DU) waste generated during test activities and from unused war reserve is subject to disposal as low-level radioactive waste. At present there is no operational alternative to sending DU wastes to commercial disposal sites for burial. Because of the uncertainties associated with the use of commercial sites in the future, the Air Force is seeking to identify and evaluate feasible recycling/disposal alternatives for the disposition of its DU wastes. In this report, potential recycle and disposal options are defined and briefly characterized. For each form of the DU waste, benefits and issues of applicable recycling/disposal alternatives are identified. Based on a comparative evaluation of these options, the most promising mode(s) of disposition are indicated for each type of waste material. The responsibilities and key regulations of government agencies pertaining to the management of low-level radioactive waste are given in the appendix
Micro-assessment of the determinants of productivity performance in U.S. manufacturing industry : final report by Christopher T Hill( Book )

1 edition published in 1985 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The productivity performance of U.S. industry in general, and of manufacturing in particular, has declined significantly in the last decade as compared with the earlier post-World-War II period. It is not possible to make an accurate diagnosis of, or a suitable prescription for, the productivity problem by looking at the performance of industry as a whole or by detailing the particular woes of certain industries that attract the most public attention, such as steel, automobile, or coal mining. Instead we can only make progress by looking in detail, and systematically, at all industry, disaggregated in a way that highlights two very important facts: 1. the productivity performance of 4-digit U.S. manufacturing industries over the last decade has ranged from dismal to outstanding, and 2. the productivity performance of individual industries is very strongly associated with other important performance measures, including changes in wages, prices, investment and output
