CAST 2015 D4.1 State of art review of spent ion exchange resins
  • CAST - A state of the art review on the different techniques used to characterize spent ion exchange resins is presented. A large part of the works that were done so far are based on liquid scintillation counting, but an increasing amount of determination are now performed in accelerator mass spectrometry. Other non-conventional techniques are also reviewed. Finally, a status of knowledge is provided on the possible chemical forms (speciation) under which 14C can be released from spent ion exchange resins. Analytical strategies for speciation by partners are also described. Available estimations of the proportion of inorganic vs. organic forms are reviewed as well as the possibility of the different forms of organic molecules, and gaseous release.

MIND 2015 D1.1 A Review of Anthropogenic Organic Wastes and Their Degradation Behaviour
  • MIND Deliverable D1.1, published December 2015. Work Package 1 of the MIND project addresses remaining key issues for the geological disposal of ILW concerning the long-term behaviour, fate and consequences of organic materials in the waste along with H2 generated by corrosion and radiolysis. This review begins this work by collating information concerning the inventory and nature of organic materials present in ILW and some LLW that requires geological disposal. The review has then considered the physical and chemical conditions that the organic materials will be subjected to during storage and geological disposal. The review then provides a summary description of the physical and chemical nature of the main organic materials present in ILW and their known chemical and radiolytic degradation behaviour. The effect of the organic degradation products on radionuclide speciation, which could affect how some radionuclides are transported in groundwater, is then considered to focus subsequent work in this field.

CAST 2016 D5.8 Synthesis report on 14C speciation in solution and gas from French graphite waste
  • CAST - Carbon 14 is one of the key radionuclides for the future disposal of French irradiated graphite waste. It is one of the main long-lived radionuclides, and depending on its speciation, it can be more or less mobile in a disposal facility and more or less incorporated into living organisms. Following a first report concerning a review of the available leaching data of French irradiated graphite, particularly focused on carbon 14 release rates (D5.1), this second report (D5.8) addresses the speciation of the released carbon 14.

CAST 2016 D5.7 Report on C14 distribution in irradiated graphite from research reactor VVR-S
  • CAST - The main objective of the IFIN-HH in the second year of its input to Work Package 5 was to update the inventory of 14C in the irradiated graphite arising from thermal column of VVR-S Reactor and radioactive wastes containing organic and inorganic 14C compounds. IFIN-HH has characterized the 14C inventory of irradiated graphite from thermal column of VVR-S Reactor, and has started to develop a method, based on the use Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) which will be suitable to characterize the distributions of14C inventory in irradiated graphite. Finally, in order to measure the total release of 14C (and 3H) to solution and gas from crushed and intact i-graphite from the VVR-S Reactor, the experimental apparatus has been designed and manufactured.

MIND 2016 D2.1 Inventory of reducing gases
  • MIND Deliverable D2.1, published November 2016. In order to provide data needed to address the question on geochemical constraints of biological activity at spent nuclear fuel waste repository sites, geochemical data of dissolved gases from deep drill holes and mines in Finland and Sweden were collected based on a literature and database survey. Gas data were found from 20 separate localities in Finland with the deepest drill holes extending down to 2500 m below surface. The gas phase is dominated by nitrogen and methane, although significant variation exists between different sites and with depth. At least partly this variation can be related to differences in lithology (rock types) and residence time of water within the bedrock. Corresponding data from Sweden were from 2 localities extending to at most 1000 m below surface.

  • Cebama deliverable D4.09, published January 2017. This report series aims at interpreting how the results of the research conducted within CEBAMA can be applied and contribute to the Safety Case. This is the first of two reports, which will be updated at the end of the project. Given the complexity of the experiments and the models developed within CEBAMA, it is in general too early at PM18 for the partners to produce results directly applicable to the Safety Case. Nevertheless, we present here some briefing on the impact aimed at within the project and highlight the value of some of the work undertaken to date.

  • JOPRAD 2017 Draft Programme Document for public consultation (Work Package 4, Deliverable D4.2, v0.7, March 2017). This Programme Document sets out the scientific and technical basis of a future Joint Programme on Radioactive Waste Management and Disposal. In its current form, it is a deliverable of the EC ‘Towards a Joint Programme on Radioactive Waste Disposal - JOPRAD’ project and represents the views of JOPRAD participants on research, development and demonstration (RD&D) priorities considered as suitable for Joint Programming. To obtain the support of the wider European Radioactive Waste Community, the contents herein will be disseminated and the draft document made available for open consultation during March – April 2017. Finalisation and issue to the European Commission is expected by the end of November 2017. After this time, it is anticipated that this Programme Document (in its final form of a Strategic Research Agenda) will be taken over in-part or wholly by those responding to the European Commission EURATOM H2020 Call (WP2018) in the form of a Joint Programme Proposal.

  • CAST - The 1st Workshop of the CAST project was held 5 - 6 October 2016 at the COVRA facilities, Vlissingen, Netherlands. Presentations were given showing the status of project work and scientific-technical achievements, but also how the project work falls in the wider context. A series of topics were identified where R&D is still required in order to obtain the desired confidence in safety for geological disposal of the concerned waste materials. This is also relevant for the question to which extent confidence in safety for disposal in less ambitious facilities than deep geological ones can be justified, with or without pre-treatment of the waste material.

CAST 2017 D6.2 Knowledge supporting safety assessments of 14C
  • CAST - Work Package 6 of the CAST project is devoted to the knowledge base concerning the re-lease and transport of 14C in the context of post-closure safety assessments of the geological disposal of radioactive waste. This report (D6.2) assesses the various approaches for safety assessment discussed in report D6.1 in the light of the existing knowledge about the 14C source term. It proposes a synthesis of D6.1, identifies commonalities and differences between approaches and concepts and highlights safety-critical uncertainties pertaining to 14C fate in waste disposal.

CAST 2017 D5.14 Release of C14 from irradiated VVR-S graphite to solution and gas phases
  • CAST - Irradiated graphite, dismantled from the thermal column of VVR-S Reactor, contains different radioisotopes as activation products, including carbon-14 (C-14) and tritium (H-3). In repository-relevant conditions, this graphite could be a source of gases containing C-14 and H-3. In the experiments performed by IFIN-HH we have investigated the release of C-14 and H-3 from two intact samples of irradiated graphite which have been cut from the thermal column disc located near the reactor core.

CAST 2017 D5.12 Final evaluation of leach rates of treated and untreated i-graphites
  • CAST - Work Package 5 of the EC CAST project considers the behaviour of 14C i-graphite. In particular, the work is focused on understanding the factors determining the release of 14C from irradiated graphite (hereafter “i-graphite") under disposal conditions (including surface disposal facilities and deep geological disposal facilities). In this study, the release of 14C was investigated in model experiments with i-graphite from the Rossendorf Research Reactor (RFR).
