This publication explores disposal concepts that can be applicable for Member States with small inventories of intermediate and high level waste. The concepts are evaluated for their potential suitability in a number of situations. Case studies are included, some of which look at facilities that are being planned or operated. Others, such as disposal in deep boreholes, have only been examined at a conceptual level.
