  • Evaluation of elements responsible for the effective engaged dose rates associated with the final storage of radioactive waste: Everest project: Volume 2a: Clay formation, site in Belgium

Abstract

In the Everest project an assessment has been made of the quantitative impact in the long tern on the performance estimators due to the variability and uncertainties affecting the various items entering into the performance assessment for a repository for radioactive waste (high-level as well as medium-level). The work includes model parameter variability, conceptual model differences, scenario characteristics, and future states of the repository system. Disposal concepts in three different host rock formation, clay, granite and rock salt have been considered. The report EUR 17449 EN presents all details of the study and consists of four different volumes divided into six parts. This publication, Volume 2a, covers clay formation at the site in Belgium. The results were analysed in order to put into evidence the predominant factors and phenomena. Recommendations for further research and development work have been expressed.
