COBECOMA: State-of-the-art document on the COrrosion BEhaviour of COntainer Materials, Final Report

Project ID: FIKW-CT-2001-20138
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C


This report is the outcome of a Thematic Network concerning the 'Corrosion BEhaviour of COntainer MAterials (COBECOMA)' considered for the underground disposal of radioactive waste in deep geological host rock formations. This Thematic Network is composed of five research organisations, i.e. SCK¿CEN (Belgium), SKB (Sweden), SERCO ASSURANCE (United Kingdom), INASMET (Spain), and FZK.INE (Germany), originating from five different member states of the European Union. Also, CEA/SACLAY (France) was appointed as an expert. The consortium is a complementary group of research organisations that have a vast amount of specific expertise and scientific know-how in the field of container corrosion in the different envisaged geological formations and backfill materials, e.g. salt, clay, granite, and cement.
This Thematic Network was co-ordinated by SCK¿CEN and was entirely financed by the Commission of the European Communities (CEC) (Contract No. FIKW-CT-2001-20138).
