Abstract

In many countries (such as Belgium, Germany, France, Japan, Switzerland, and United Kingdom), deep argillaceous formations are considered as potential host rocks for geological disposal of high-level and intermediate-level long-lived radioactive wastes. Some of these countries are investigating the suitability of high compacted clay-rich rocks at depths down to around 500 m below the ground surface. The general disposal concept comprises a network of drifts and tunnels linked to the surface by shafts and ramps, all artificially ventilated. Research is ongoing in Underground Research Laboratories, like the Mont Terri site in the Swiss Jura, to assess and ensure the safety of the repositories for the full decay life of the radioactive waste, i.e. the capacity of the hypothetical repository toprevent the migration of radionuclides towards the biosphere.[...]
