In China, the radioactive environmental impact assessment (EIA) for nuclear power plants (NPPs) had been carried out in detail due to the specific characteristic of radiation and the social universal attention. However, the nonradioactive environment impact assessment for NPP doesn’t get enough attention. This should be improved, since the operation of NPPs could cause some serious nonradioactive environment impacts.

Based on the investigation of EIA for American NPPs, the following suggestions were put forward for Chinese EIA: (1) the laws and regulations in China need to be revised for the EIA of NPPs; (2) the statistics of chemicals or biocides used in the operation of NPPs and their discharged concentration need to be tested; (3) the impact assessments of nonradioactive gas emissions as well as hazardous wastes need to be carried out to meet the national requirements; and (4) the monitoring of nonradioactive waste also needs to be carried out for NPPs to obtain the basic data.
