Key Topic 2: Understanding the Wastes
This research aims to improve understanding of the behaviour of various wastes in geological disposal facilities in order to better quantify the processes controlling radionuclide, chemical and gas release from waste forms, to improve the quality of models used in safety assessments and to adequately define the types and magnitudes of uncertainties associated with various processes.
Key Topic 3: Technical Feasibility and Long-term Performance
This research area involves demonstrating and optimising technology and construction of a repository and its components, including confirming a feasible and safe operational phase and ensuring that the required safety functions are provided in the long-term after repository closure.
