Abstract

The report presents the cost estimate and the work plan for the construction of a repository, to be mined in a medium size salt dome for the simultaneous disposal of different categories of solid radioactive wastes. The repository is designed for all categories of waste from 40 years of operation of 25 nuclear power stations of 1000 MWe each, including the decommissioning waste from these stations as well as all the radioactive wastes from the hospitals and laboratories during a hundred year period. The cost estimate includes preparation of a site, the construction, operation and abandonment of that repository. Moreover, an outline has been presented for a future updating and optimization study of the concept.
