ECOCLAY II, Effects of cement on clay barrier performance - phase II, Final Report

Project ID: FIKW-CT-2000-00028
Funded under: FP5-EAECTP C


In 1999, as the project ECOCLAY I ended (see report EUR 19609 EN), the European Commission published its calls for proposals for the 5th Framework Program. ENRESA and Andra who wished to build together a second project on cement - clay interactions heard that others countries could be interested in joining a new proposal on this same subject. In a few months, the basis for the ECOCLAY II project were written and submitted to the European Commission.
The ECOCLAY II project was accepted in June 2000 and officially started on October 1st 2000. It lasted 3 years. During this time, 18 participants from 8 countries in Europe had the opportunity to work on many aspects related to cement degradation, clay alteration and performance assessment, to compare their results, to discuss them and finally to propose an assessment on the effects of an alkaline plume on clay properties.
This document is the sum of their contributions and constitute the final report of the ECOCLAY II project, co-financed by the European Commission under the contract FIKWCT-2000-00018. It covers the period October 1st, 2000, to September 31st, 2003. It aims to summarize the main results of the project. As the participants wished it, the report is public. Moreover, detail articles are already published and other will follow that should complete this report, for the best.
