Description

The development of uranium-plutonium compounds as nuclear fuel is a new nuclear technology using poorly studied highly active uranium compounds. The toxicity and consequences of the biological action of such compounds are the subject of this work.
It should be noted that during the production of MNUP fuel there is a possibility of impact on the population and the environment, which is mainly due to the involvement of plutonium in the nuclear fuel cycle, as it is more radiation hazardous than uranium.
The report devoted to this work will discuss the multifactorial effects of MNUP fuel components on public health: external photon and neutron irradiation and internal irradiation due to inhalation of 238U, 239Pu and their decay products.
Based on the presented data, a scientifically grounded approach to assessing the impact of the factors of MNUP fuel components on the health of various critical groups of the population will be proposed.
To develop this scientifically grounded approach, the results of the analysis of the available experimental estimates of the toxicity of radionuclides and their compounds that make up the MNUP fuel and the results of our own research at individual stages of the NFC will be used.
The method used in this work for assessing the health indicators of the population living in the immediate vicinity of enterprises working with MNUP-fuel will make it possible to offer recommendations for doctors monitoring the health of the population.
