To improve the long-term safety of waste management in various aspects, ranging from long-term assessment of geological disposal to accurate measurements of actinides in waste (actinide monitoring) to minimisation of alpha-waste arising (actinide separation).

Abstract

Joint Research Centre activity in this field has been mainly directed at the development of risk analysis models and tests on specific geological disposal sites. Laboratory experiments have been conducted to provide data on the stability of conditioned waste and the migration of radionuclides in geological formations.

Subdivision

Four projects:

- Risk evaluation;

- Protective barriers;

- Actinide separation;

- Actinide monitoring.

Implementation

Information not presently available.
