English term or phrase: beneficial civilian purposes
Estoy creando un glosario de varias traducciones (hechas por varios traductores) en donde 'beneficial civilian purposes' (que se refiere al uso de material nuclear en determinadas áreas) se ha traducido como 'usos civiles', 'finalidades civiles beneficiosas' and 'propósitos civiles beneficiosos'.

No quiero dejar 'purposes' como 'usos' porque el término aparece varias veces cerca de la palabra 'use'. Pero sí prefiero utilizar un solo término en la medida de lo posible ya que voy a hacer un QA con el glosario. La traducción es para los EE. UU. Gracias.

PS. El término aparece por ejemplo en: "[allow] organizations to use radioactive materials for beneficial civilian purposes...."
