Disposal Technology

Deep geological disposal of spent nuclear fuels in bedrock of 500 to 1,000m underground is needed for long-term stability as they have high levels of heat and radiation. Numerous efforts have been made to optimize the system using a multi-layer barrier harmonizing with a natural barrier.
