Summer 2017 Board Meeting
June 21, 2017

Topic: High-level radioactive waste glass corrosion

The NWTRB will review information on U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) research activities related to corrosion and long-term performance of borosilicate high-level radioactive waste (HLW) glass that eventually will be disposed of in a deep geologic repository. Speakers from U.S. national laboratories will present work on HLW glass corrosion and long-term performance in generic repository performance assessments. Speakers from organizations in other countries will provide their perspectives on the current understanding and remaining challenges in measuring and modeling glass performance in repository environments.
