Radon Site for Near-Surface Disposal of Solid RW

  • Vyacheslav G. RumyninEmail author
Part of the Theory and Applications of Transport in Porous Media book series (TATP, volume 25)


Radon Enterprise, as a regional repository for RW processing and disposal, is a member of the Northwestern Center of Nuclear Energy. The Center is located in Sosnoviy Bor Town (Fig. 21.1). The distance from the Radon site to the shoreline of the Gulf of Finland (Koporskaya Bay) is about 1 km.
