Shale Rocks as Nuclear Waste Repositories: Hydrothermal Reactions with Glass, Ceramic and Spent Fuel Waste Forms
The objectives of various contributions from this laboratory have been to simulate “worst case” situations, given a proposed choice of waste form, repository rock, and waste loading/waste age. The “worst case” seems to be the situation in which either young waste or high waste loadings produce a high temperature in a repository in which a fluid phase is present.
