LUCOEX aims to demonstrate the overall feasibility of construction, component manufacturing and sealing of underground repositories for high-level radioactive waste. This has been done through four full-scale demonstrators performed in four different underground research laboratories in Europe. The project covers disposal concepts in both clay and crystalline rock.
A lot of experiences have been gained from the full-scale demonstration tests. Lessons learned and results from the four demonstrations will be presented as well as how they fit into the different national programmes.
Lucoex is organising a Workshop and Conference on Full-scale demonstration tests in technology development of repositories for disposal of radioactive waste will be held on June 4-5, 2015, Oskarshamn, Sweden.
This conference aims to cover all aspects of how to accomplish full-scale demonstration tests of repository concepts for the disposal of radioactive waste. Based on the experiences and challenges from the LUCOEX project the conference will focus on planning, excavation of tunnels/drifts, manufacturing of components and installation equipment, installation techniques, instrumentation/monitoring and workers safety.
Opportunity will be given to present plans and results from other projects/programmes.
