Detail

A new report by the Environment Agency explores factors that might influence the long-term safety of an underground repository to dispose of high-level radioactive waste (HLW) and spent fuel (SF).

This project has explored current understanding of what controls the performance of different repository designs for HLW and SF disposal, focusing on the role of the engineered barrier system (EBS).
