PUBLIC LECTURE: Safe Storage of Radioactive Wastes: options and challenges
A free public lecture by Dr Lanru Jing, Senior Researcher, Royal Institute of Technology, Stockholm, Sweden.
The creation of huge quantities of high-level, long-lived radioactive waste is the most formidable problem facing the nuclear power industry today. Achieving safe storage of radioactive wastes so that they will not endanger biosphere environment is a great challenge. With supports and participation of national radioactive waste management agencies and regulatory bodies from the USA, Canada, Japan, Korea, China, Finland, Sweden, Germany, France, Spain, UK and Czech, an international collaborative research project, DECOVALEX, was initiated in 1992. The primary objective of this project is to evaluate if the nuclear waste can be stored safely in a geological repository of a multi-barrier system.
This public lecture will provide an overview of major findings through the DECOVALEX project and their implications on the nuclear power industry and public health.
