Waste Management

Radioactive Waste Management

The management of radioactive waste is a complex and demanding challenge and ÅF has expertise and years of experience in this field.

An important part of nuclear power production includes the short and long-term management of radioactive waste and spent fuel, and ÅF has many years of experience with the management of operational waste, waste from decommissioning and spent fuel.

ÅF's services:

  • Waste Characterization, Volume Definition, Volume Reduction and Separation Procedures, Logistics, Waste Packages Types
  • Definition of Features, Events and Processes and Scenario Development for Geological Radioactive Waste Repositories
  • Radiological Safety Analysis for Near-Field Release, Geosphere Transport and Dose Calculation
  • Surveys on Scientific, Socio-economic and legal issues of radioactive waste disposal
  • Studies on Chemo-toxic Waste Compatibility
  • Safety Analyses for Deep Geological Repositories in Clay, Salt and Granite Formations
  • Numerical Modelling of the Release and Transport of Radionuclides and Chemical Contaminants
  • Computation of the Potential Radiological Consequences for Man and the Environment.
  • Design of nuclear facilities for waste treatment, interim storage and final repository


Radioactive Waste Disposal

We have supported national organizations worldwide for the management of radioactive waste in matters concerning the deep geological disposal since the 1980’s. Our clients are domiciled in Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Japan, Sweden and Switzerland. We conduct anything from small case studies to analyse, e.g., a particular petrophysical process, to all-encompassing scenario analyses for entire repositories. In addition to doing scientific work, we support the organizations in the challenging tasks of public relations and licensing.

ÅF's services:

  • Definition of features, events and processes and scenario development for geological radioactive waste repositories.
  • Geological and hydrogeological site characterization.
  • Numerical radiological safety analysis for nearfield release, geosphere transport and dose calculation.
  • Surveys on scientific, socio-economic and legal issues of radioactive waste disposal.
  • Studies on chemo-toxic waste compatibility.
  • Safety analyses for deep geological repositories in clay, salt and granite formations.
  • Numerical modelling of the release and transport of radionuclides and chemical contaminants.
