Geological Disposal of Radioactive Waste in Clay

Abstract. Keeping future generations safe from today's nuclear waste relies on this waste being effectively isolated for all time. Clay rocks, or rocks with a high clay content, offer promising isolation properties over time periods that are as long as the age of their host geological formations. Constructing a repository in such material does ...


Oct 26, 2016 Oct 26, 2016 NRCCA Soil Fertility & Nutrient Management – Study Guide – 10/26/2016 5 o Texture is defined as the proportion of sand, silt and clay in the soil. As the clay content increases, so does the CEC, resulting in a greater ability to hold nutrients.

Types of waste properties and durability of toxic waste

Jan 01, 2015 Jan 01, 2015 The EWC (2002) is a hierarchical list of 20 codes of waste descriptions established by Commission Decision 2000/532/EC which classifies and categorizes waste materials (). Figure 7.1 shows the classification of the studied wastes into these 20 different codes. The studies analyzed in this review usually mix clay with one or more wastes from different EWC codes to obtain …
