Tomsk-7 and Krasnoyarsk-26 Sites for Deep-Well Injection Radioactive Waste Disposal, and Lake Karachai Site of Near-Surface Disposal of Radioactive Brine

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


This experimental study was motivated by the need to carry out a safety assessment focused on the scientific understanding and measurement of the consequences of operations with radioactive waste (RW) at two chemical plants in Western Siberia. The industrial cycles of these plants are aimed at the production of nuclear weapon components and isotopes for medical and research needs. Both sites are associated with two systems of injection wells, which are used for disposal of low-level (LLW) and intermediate-level (ILW) radioactive wastes in deep geological formations. The solute transport properties of these formations are of special interest for long-term radionuclide migration forecasting.
