Introduction

Main objectives

Research to contribute to a broadly agreed approach to waste management and disposal; exploration of the technical and economic potential of concepts able to make better use of fissile material and generate less waste.

Thematic areas

Research on geological disposal:

  • improvement of fundamental knowledge, developing and testing technologies (key physical, chemical and biological processes, interaction with barriers, long-term stability, etc.)
  • new and improved tools (models for performance and safety assessment, development of alternative measures of performance and better governance)

Partitioning and transmutation and other concepts

  • Partitioning and transmutation
  • Concepts to produce less waste

Budget

The indicative budget allocated to Management of radioactive waste for the duration of FP6 is € 90 million
