Geological Disposal of Radioactive Waste
An essential adjunct to the increased use of nuclear power
Energy from nuclear power is expected to almost double between 2020 and 2050. (Source: IEA Net Zero Report). Subsurface exploration is key to solving the problem of long-term radioactive waste disposal, to ensure that the waste will be effectively isolated from the biosphere for hundreds of thousands of years. A detailed characterization of the host rock and the integration of borehole information, geophysical data, and field observations into a 3D model enable companies to successfully characterize a potential disposal facility and ensure no pollution or contamination of potential future resources.
