Disposal options

Options for disposal are indicated in Fig. 1.20 and depend to large extent on the content and half-life of radionuclides in the waste. Small contents and short-lived wastes may be suitable for near surface disposal (IAEA, 2002), while larger contents and long-lived radionuclides require deep or

very deep disposal, relying on the geosphere to keep the radioactive species from the biosphere (IAEA, 2003a; Ahn and Apted, 2010). As for the storage concepts described above, most geological approaches use a multi-barrier system to improve the safety of disposal where the waste form, container, near field environment (e. g., engineered barrier system, EBS) and far field environment (host rock) are all important in retaining radionuclides in the geosphere.
