This means that the final product needs to be in a passively safe, containerised form that meets the Waste Acceptance requirements for the intended disposal facility, or are compliant with the expected requirements of a future facility yet to be implemented (e.g. the Letter of Compliance approach for wastes intended for deep geological disposal in the UK).
Quintessa has supported a wide range of projects that support disposability assessments or for which disposability is a key concern. We have supported both the derivation of disposability requirements (see also our Waste Acceptance Criteria page) and aspects of disposability assessments for a range of wastes in the UK and overseas. In addition, disposability has been a key driver recognised in many of the BAT studies for which we have provided a leading role.
