Within the framework of the International Energy Agency (IEA), an international collaborative study on fusion radioactive waste has been carried out over the past several years to examine the back-end of the material cycle. This activity is important to maximize the environmental benefits of fusion as a source of energy. Fusion devices have certain characteristics that make them environmentally friendly devices. In previous studies, an integrated approach to the management of fusion materials back-end was proposed, starting from the removal of components from the power plant, to the reuse of materials through recycling and clearance, or the disposal of the low-level waste in repositories. Recycling and clearance procedures pose many technical questions. Several important technology-related issues were identified and are presented. The paper discusses these issues and considers the requirements to the materials and components permitting their clearance or recycling
