 국내원전의 방사성유출물 배출현황과 특성에 대한 고찰 손중권;공태영;최종락;김희근; A Review and Characteristics for Radioactive Effluents from the Nuclear Power Plants in Korea Son, Jung-Kwon;Kong, Tae-Young;Choi, Jong-Rak;Kim, Hee-Geun; ABSTRACT As of the end of 2010, 21 nuclear power reactors were operating in Korea. Radioactive effluents from nuclear power plants (NPPs) had been increased continuously and the radioactivity of effluents released in 2010 was 547.12 TBq. From 2001 to 2010, the annual average radioactivity of gaseous and liquid effluents per reactor was 11.61 TBq for pressurized water reactor (PWR) plants and 118.12 TBq for PHWR (pressurized heavy water reactor) plants. Most of the radioactivity from gaseous and liquid effluents was came from $^3H$. Based on the results of release trends and analysis, effluents characteristics was suggested for the management of radioactive effluents from NPPs.
