In addition to the chemical toxicity of many of the latter, the production of long‐lived nuclides from nuclear power programmes has introduced additional radiotoxicological hazards. Associated problems of the presence of contaminating, non‐metal co‐pollutants and the presentation of dilute, high‐volume wastes have received little attention. Traditional biotechnological waste treatments have relied either on the use…
