Final Activity Report - MICADO (Model uncertainty for the mechanism of dissolution of spent fuel in a nuclear waste repository)

Project ID: 36366


This is the final report of the MICADO project funded under the European Commission (EC)'s Sixth Framework Programme (FP6). This project attempted to assess the uncertainties in models describing the dissolution mechanism of spent nuclear fuel in a repository for geological time periods. The introduction asks whether international research has now provided sufficiently reliable models to assess the corrosion behaviour of spent fuel in groundwater and by this to contribute to answering the question whether the highly radioactive used fuel from nuclear reactors can be disposed of safely in a geological repository. The rest of the report is then devoted to answering this question and details the actions that were undertaken.
