Appendix H. Assessment of the disposal of HLW from advanced fuel cycle schemes in the Boom Clay Formation

Jan Marivoet, Eef Weetjens

    Research outputpeer-review


    This study analyses a range of advanced nuclear fuel cycle options from the perspective of their effect on radioactive waste management policies. It presents various fuel cycle options which illustrate differences between alternative technologies, but does not purport to cover all foreseeable future fuel cycles. The analysis extends the work carried out in previous studies, assesses the fuel cycles as a whole, including all radioactive waste generated at each step of the cycles, and covers high-level waste repository performance for the different fuel cycles considered.
