Technical Meeting on Disposal Options for Smaller Radioactive Waste Inventories

6 – 10 May 2019
Vienna, Austria
Event code: EVT1804010

The purpose of this Technical Meeting is to present a draft IAEA report on potential approaches for the effective disposal of small quantities of radioactive waste. The participants will be asked to provide feedback on the applicability of these approaches to a set of national programmes dealing with a wide range of small inventories.

More specifically, the event aims to:

  • Present and discuss the draft report “Disposal Options for Smaller Radioactive Waste Inventories”;
  • Collect case examples of small waste inventories from Member States and identify what small waste inventories entail in different Member States; and
  • Evaluate the suitability of the disposal concepts put forward in the draft report with respect to the inventories presented by Member States.

The event is intended for Member States that do not have an extended nuclear program and generate only a relatively limited amount of waste. The disposal options presented may also be of interest to Member States with large inventories, particularly those that have waste with specific properties making it unsuitable for co-disposal in other facilities, such as graphite. A smaller scale disposal concept could offer a solution for such waste streams.
