Digging deep – for a safe storage of highly radioactive waste

DHI modelling helps to build a deep repository in Sweden

Spent nuclear fuel constitutes one of the most hazardous parts of radioactive waste. Its final reposition is accordingly challenging, and moreover a highly sensitive issue. DHI assists the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Co (SKB) in the planning and construction of a deep repository in Sweden by elucidating the complex dynamics of water and soil as well as solute transport patterns today and in the distant future.
