About Radwaste Solutions

Radwaste Solutions is a specialty magazine focused on the waste management and decommissioning segments of the nuclear industry. In the United States, this business is centered around the following industry subsets:

  • the Department of Energy.s remediation of its weapons production and research facilities
  • civilian radioactive waste activities, including low-level waste disposal, the onsite storage of used nuclear fuel and high-level waste, and efforts to develop a deep geologic repository
  • the management of waste from operating nuclear power plants and the decommissioning of plants no longer in operation
  • nonpower, non-DOE activities

Also covered are radwaste activities outside of the U.S., including decontamination and decommissioning efforts in the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe, where plants are closing as a result of post-Fukushima policies. Likewise, Japan continues to seek technical solutions to the challenges posed by the cleanup of Fukushima, including the management and remediation of the large volume of contaminated water resulting from the 2011 accident at the plant.

For fiscal year 2015, the DOE.s Office of Environmental Management has requested $5.622 billion, which is a 3.6 percent decrease from FY 2014. As of late 2014, however, it appears likely that Congress will pass a continuing resolution, which will maintain current funding. The Obama administration, meanwhile, is seeking an additional $8 million to help in the recovery of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant, the temporary closure of which is forcing the DOE to reprioritize its waste management activities.

The publisher reserves the right to reject any advertising that is not in keeping with the publication's specifications.

U.S. Agency Commission

Specialty print opportunities are noncommissionable, but can be grossed up by request. Invoices that remain unpaid beyond 60 days will be held responsible for the entire gross amount.

General Rate Policy

Advertisers will be short-rated if, within the calendar year of the first insertion, they do not use the amount of space upon which their billings have been established. Advertisers will be rebated if, within the calendar year of the first insertion, they have used sufficient additional space to warrant a lower rate than that at which they have been previously billed. Cancellations are NOT accepted after the ad space reservation deadline for a given issue.

Frequency Discount

Frequency discounts apply to all insertions without respect to mixed sizes. Earned rate is based on total number of insertions within the calendar year. Spreads count as two insertions.
