In this reducing environment, compounds such as methane (CH) form.
Various estimations indicate that the annual production rate for a light water reactor (pressurised or boiling water reactor) is between 0.5 and 1.9 x 10C is released during the dissolution step in reprocessing plants.
Depending on the operating mode, these releases are continuous or discontinuous.
