Abstract

The paper briefly reviews the achievements of twelve years of waste management research, carried out by shared cost actions with laboratories of member countries and by direct research at the Joint Research Centre. Activities were essentially directed to reach three goals: a) to develop the necessary waste treatment and conditioning technologies; b) to define reference disposal concepts in various types of geological formations in the European Community; c) to contribute to the implementation of those concepts, by studying the connected problems such as safety assessment, quality assurance, financing, etc., which are particularly suited to the Community framework. Planning and perspectives for the next decade are also given. Implementation and optimization of concepts presently under development is indicated as the prevailing objective.
