Waste characterization is the determination of the radiological, chemical and physical properties of waste to establish the need for treatment, handling, processing, storage, or disposal of radioactive materials. Typically, characterization is helpful in assessing what must be done to meet the requirements regarding transportation and disposal of radioactive waste. the high-level liquid waste should be solidified to a less mobile form at some time in the future. STORAGE OF HIGH-LEVEL LIQUID WASTE At present, it is the general opinion that the high-level liquid waste concentrates resulting from the reprocessing of power reactor fuels should be kept in their acidic condition in high-integrity stainless.
The passage of Russian laws permitting the importation and storage of high-level radioactive material (primarily spent nuclear fuel from reactors) has engendered interest from a number of foreign governments, including the U.S., in exploring the possibility of transferring material to Russia on a temporary or permanent basis. The reports Decommissioning of Nuclear Facilities () and The Cost of High-Level Waste Disposal in Geological Repositories () are two examples. This new study on the costs of low-level radioactive waste repositories complements these previous studies, and completes the assessment of the costs of radioactive waste management. fact, the treatment and storage of high-level radio active wastes constitute the biggest single problem in atomic waste management. And the magnitude of the problem can be gauged from the fact that in the United States alone more than 50 million gallons of high-level wastes are now stored" in underground tanks. The major effort toward long-term high-level nuclear waste disposal has been in the area of depositing in the ground all the dangerous material in some sort of containers. This approach seeks to find a permanent disposal technique so the waste can be left for posterity without any possibility of future generations being at risk.

An ideal storage site for high-level radioactive waste would be in a geologically stable place. the site shouldn't be prone to earthquakes or volcanic activity. Also, the site should be far away from groundwater/aquifers so that any leakage won't contaminate water. The site should also be secluded from human development, if there was a leak.
