The Euratom Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) Collaborative Project ‘Fast / Instant Release of Safety Relevant Radionuclides from Spent Nuclear Fuel’ (FIRST-Nuclides) aims to provide new and comprehensive knowledge of the fast release of safety-relevant RNs from light water reactors’ (LWRs) SNF after failure of the canister in an underground repository. Key input data from the project to the safety analysis are IRF values of iodine, chlorine, carbon and selenium that are still largely unknown. These elements form anionic species that are chemically weakly retained by the repository barrier system. The research performed within the project is based on experimental investigations of high burn-up (BU) UO2 SNF, mainly from pressurised water reactors (PWRs) and boiling water reactors (BWRs), combined with modelling studies.
