Özet

Frequent use of bisphenol-a polycarbonate in daily life results with a huge amount of polycarbonate waste. The proper utilization of this waste would be an environmental friendly approach. As polymeric materials are candidate materials for radioactive waste embedding, having an aromatic structure within the main chain, the bisphenol-a polycarbonate is a candidate material to be used as an embedding matrix for the confinement of low and intermediate level radioactive waste. This possibility would partly solve the problem of huge amount of waste generated due to the usage of polycarbonate.
