Renewable sources of energy might seem to be a viable alternative for clean-power generation. However, their intermittency is an impediment. In this context, nuclear energy merits serious consideration. Public aversion exists due to its potential risks, past disasters and lack of suitable solutions for management of its high-level radioactive wastes, Spent Nuclear Fuel (SNF) in particular. This report deals with the quantity of radioactive waste generated, its effective management, containment and disposal. It also throws light upon High-Level Waste (HLW) and the storage of SNF. A brief description of the various techniques proposed, from an economic standpoint, and plausible suggestions for the growth of nuclear power in India is also provided.
