Your guide to radioactive waste resources on the Internet
Welcome to the new and expanded home of WasteLink, your guide to radioactive waste, nuclear and radiation related material on the internet, at RadWaste.org. While the primary purpose of this site is to provide a reference source for radioactive waste management professionals, we recognize that radwaste is a hotly debated and emotional issue in today's society. Few other topics can polarize a community faster than the discussion of what to do with radioactive waste (or whether we should be generating any at all). Therefore, we strive to present all sides of the story in a non-partisan fashion. Intelligent people, like yourself, have a right to evaluate the available information and form their own opinions. Our attempt at non-biased coverage has earned us the respect of people and institutions on all sides of the issue, pro, anti, academic, governments, and professional societies to name a few. Just look at the Friends of RadWaste.org page to see some of the many links to our site. Thank you for stopping by, and let us know what you think of our site.
The award winning WasteLink directory includes more than 10,000 links to radwaste, nuclear, radiation and environmental related companies, research centres, regulatory agencies, government organizations, non-governmental organizations, etc.. (Most of the sites are in English, or provide English summary content. You can translate to/from several other languages (including Spanish, English, French and German) using the free AltaVista Translation Service or similar services such as Google language tools. As a service to our users, we have flagged the languages used on each site added to our index since April 2003. Older sites are flagged as they are periodically checked by our staff. Look for markings such as EN , with an index to language codes here.) In addition, many of these sites have links to further sites that may not be listed in this index.
You can navigate these pages by category, following the index "tabs" at the side of the page. Each will connect to the page of links for that category. You can move from any page to any page directly. Click on the "Home" tab to return to this page. Check out the new "National Profiles" tab to find links to summary reports of nuclear activities in various countries produced by a number of organizations.
The WasteLink directory is updated on a regular basis. Links which have been added (or changed) in the last month or so are flagged with or . Sites which provide an e-mail only link are marked with . Users like yourself contribute greatly to the success of this directory! If you find links that no longer work, or can suggest a new entry for the directory, please let us know. (We all recognize that the "web" is constantly changing, with a dynamic life of its own.)
