Disposal Concept Design and Optimisation
GSL has excellent knowledge of disposal concepts for intermediate-level waste (ILW), high-level waste (HLW) and spent nuclear fuel (SF).
To support the development of a Geologic Disposal Facility concept under the Managing Radioactive Waste Safely process in the UK, GSL has completed a project that provided an evaluation of ILW disposal concepts on an international basis, and a review of the development of the UK Phased Geological Repository Concept. GSL staff supported a similar project in relation to HLW and SF. In addition, GSL staff have been involved with the development of disposal concepts for several national programmes (e.g. development of the Supercontainer design in Belgium).
