Shallow Geological Disposal

Shallow (10s to 200 m) geological disposal facilities for particular nuclear wastes have been developed in a number of countries (e.g. SFR in Sweden) and are under active consideration elsewhere.

Quintessa has developed a White Paper, which discusses the benefits of disposing of selected wastes in Shallow Geological Disposal facilities by considering the:

  • drivers and international experience;
  • potentially suitable waste types;
  • disposal concepts;
  • strategic options;
  • safety case; and
  • business case.

Please contact George Towler if you would like a copy of the Shallow Geological Disposal White Paper and to discuss these issues further.
