Identifying and testing indicators for assessing the long-term performance of geological repositories: the European SPIN project

Project ID: FIKW-CT-2000-00081
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C


Geological disposal is currently a widely studied solution for the long-term management of high-level and long-lived radioactive waste. But how can we assess the resulting level of safety? The European SPIN project identified and assessed safety and performance indicators that are complementary to radiation doses to humans. Besides providing alternative ways to evaluate the safety of future geological repositories, these indicators help understand how such repositories work by visualising both their global performance and that of their individual components.

This 4-page brochure summarises the results of the SPIN project.
