Figure Heavy metals emission intensity of manufacturing industries in Europe 2004-2010
The chart displays changes in heavy metals emission intensity of metal industry between 2004 and 2010. Heavy metals emission intensity is expressed as kilogram of heavy metals equivalent discharged in water (weighted according to toxicity) per unit of production of metal industry (expressed as one million Euro gross value added). See Methodology section for more details.

Figure Historic series in annual spent fuel arisings (tonnes heavy metals)
The following table refers to nuclear waste: it presents annual spent fuel arisings in nuclear power plants of OECD countries. The data are expressed in tonnes of heavy metal, and include projections and estimates up to the year 2010. Spent fuel arisings are one part of the radioactive waste generated at various stages of the nuclear fuel cycle (uranium mining and milling, fuel enrichment, reactor operation, spent fuel reprocessing). Radioactive waste also arises from decontamination and decommissioning of nuclear facilities, and from other activities using isotopes, such as scientific research and medical activities. The impact of nuclear waste on humans and the environment depends on the level of radioactivity and on the conditions under which the waste is handled, treated, stored and disposed of. While reading this table it should be noted that these data do not represent all radioactive waste generated, and that amounts of spent fuel arisings depend on the share of nuclear electricity in the energy supply and on the nuclear plant technologies adopted.
