An ICSU committee on the geological disposal of high-level radioactive wastes has concluded that century-long interim storage is essential and that disposal in Cited by: BGS radioactive waste research The BGS has been involved in radioactive waste disposal research since the mids.

As a public sector not-for-profit organisation, BGS is responsible for advising the UK government on a range of aspects of geoscience as well as providing impartial geological advice to industry, academia and the public. The safe management of nuclear and radioactive wastes is a subject that has recently received considerable recognition due to the huge volume of accumulative wastes and the increased public awareness of the hazards of these wastes.

This book aims to cover the practice and research efforts that are currently conducted to deal with the technical difficulties in different radioactive waste. A deep geological repository is a radioactive waste repository excavated deep within a stable geologic environment (typically below m or feet).

It entails a combination of waste form, waste package, engineered seals and geology that is suited to provide a high level of long-term isolation and containment without future maintenance.

Background. Geological disposal is now well established as the ultimate end-point for managing long-lived radioactive waste in a safe manner which will protect human and the environment passively for the required long time scales (more information is provided in the RWMC Collective Statement).The modern concept of the "safety case" was first introduced by the NEA Expert Group on.
