About this book

This book presents a critical review of designing, siting, constructing and demonstrating the safety and environmental impact of deep repositories for radioactive wastes. It is structured to provide a broad perspective of this multi-faceted, multi-disciplinary topic: providing enough detail for a non-specialist to understand the fundamental principles involved and with extensive references to sources of more detailed information.

Emphasis is very much on "deep" geological disposal - at least some tens of metres below land surface and, in many cases, many hundred of metres deep. Additionally, only radioactive wastes are considered directly - even though such wastes often contain also significant chemotoxic or otherwise hazardous components. Many of the principles involved are generally applicable to other repository options (e.g. near-surface or on-surface disposal) and, indeed, to other types of hazardous waste.

Contents

1. Introduction. 2. Waste sources and classification. 3. Development of the geological disposal concepts. 4. Site selection and characterisation. 5. Repository design. 6. Assessment of the safety and performance of a radioactive waste repository. 7. Repository implementation. 8. Research and Development infrastructure. 9. Building confidence in the safe disposal of radioactive waste. 10. A look to the future.
