International topical seminar on plugging and sealing - DOPAS 2016 Seminar
First call of abstracts
DOPAS 2016 SeminarDemonstration of the industrial feasibility of plugs and seals, the measurement of their characteristics, the monitoring of their hydraulic and mechanical behaviour under repository conditions, and their performance with respect to a range of safety objectives is essential before implementation and operation of repositories for spent fuel or HL and IL/LL waste.
The international seminar DOPAS 2016 will be held on May 25-27th, 2016 in Turku, Finland and will focus on the state-of-the-art of plugs and seals. This will include discussion of the lessons learned from full-scale demonstrations undertaken as part of the European Commission DOPAS Project between 2012 and 2016. The seminar will highlight the design basis of plugs and seals, reference designs including rock excavation and materials development, and strategies to demonstrate the compliance of the reference designs to the design basis and how full scale experiments can support implementation.
The seminar will seek to develop a broad overview of plugs and seals. To this end, the seminar encourages participation from anyone undertaking research and development on plugs and seals in all types of repository programmes, as well as regulators and other stakeholders. In addition, the seminar would welcome perspectives from other industries, such as mining, hazardous waste disposal, CO2 sequestration and underground storage where final closure is needed.
