Radioactive Waste Disposal into a Plastic Clay Formation: Probabilistic Assessment of the Geological Containment
This paper gives a first approach of the probabilistic safety analysis of a potential nuclear waste repository to be mined into the Boom Clay formation underlying the nuclear plants of Mol (Belgium). The study has been performed through a close collaboration between the J.R.C. of Ispra and the CEN/SCK of Mol.
