Abstract [en]

Time is progressing towards 2025 when the vision of IGD-TP is to have an operating geological disposal facility in Europe, only nine years remains. As mature national programs are developing details on what is needed regarding characterisation of spent nuclear fuel, i.e. determining source terms to decay heat, criticality or dose rates, it becomes more evident that the uncertainties associated with such parameters and the underlying knowledge of source terms have large impacts on economy and safety of interim storage and deep geological facilities.

With the Spent fuel characterization Program for the Implementation of (geological) Repositories (SPIRE), we try to address remaining issues for spent fuel characterization in relation to its storage, both short term and long term. We attack the operators' challenge both from a measurement and simulation point of view, including development of both old a new measurement techniques, enhancing the precision and reliability with which parameters of the fuel can be calculated and perform validation and verification efforts in this context.

We believe that spent fuel characterization is an important contribution to enabling the vision of the IGD-TP.
