    Abstract : Current Swedish environmental policy embraces the notion of sustainable development and the discourse of ecological modernisation, both of which stress the role of modern institutions in environmental protection work. In pursuing ecological sustainability, the Swedish Government assigns importance to the issue of domestic, safe, final disposal of mercury and radioactive waste; responsibility for mercury and radioactive waste management must not be passed to future generations.

  2. 2. The complexation of some radionuclides with natural organics : Implications for radioactive waste disposal

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Maria Nordén; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [1994]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN;

    Abstract : Natural organics like humic substances are important for the speciation, mobility and bioavailability of metals in the environment. This ability necessitates the investigation of what impact humic substances may have on radionuclides that accidentally can escape from radioactive waste repositories. READ MORE

  3. 3. Modeling internal deformation of salt structures targeted for radioactive waste disposal

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Zurab Chemia; Uppsala universitet.; [2008]
    Keywords : salt; diapir; anhydrite; deformation; entrainment; numerical modeling; rheology; sinking; Gorleben;

    Abstract : This thesis uses results of systematic numerical models to argue that externally inactive salt structures, which are potential targets for radioactive waste disposal, might be internally active due to the presence of dense layers or blocks within a salt layer.The three papers that support this thesis use the Gorleben salt diapir (NW Germany), which was targeted as a future final repository for high-grade radioactive waste, as a general guideline.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Kärnkraftverk släpper under drift ut små mängder av många olika radioaktiva ämnen. De flesta av dessa ämnen når aldrig människan. Detta beror vanligen på att de hunnit sönderfalla på vägen eller att det saknas upptagsvägar vilket betyder att de är otillgängliga för människan. READ MORE
