The PEGASUS project described in this paper is concerned with the effects of gas in underground storage facilities for radioactive waste. It covers both experimental and theoretical studies of the processes of gas formation and possible gas release from the different waste types (LLW, ILW and HLW) under typical repository conditions in suitable geological formations such as clay, salt and granite. In this paper an overview is given of the various studies undertaken in the project and some first results are presented.
