Abstract

The CHANCE project aims to address the specific issue of the characterization of conditioned radioactive waste (CRW). The first objective of CHANCE is to establish, at the European level, a comprehensive understanding of current CRW characterization and quality control schemes. The second objective of CHANCE is to further develop, test and validate techniques already identified that will undoubtedly improve the characterization of CRW. Specifically, these technical tasks will focus on calorimetry as an innovative non-destructive technique to reduce uncertainties on the inventory of radionuclides; Muon Tomography to address the specific issue of non-destructive control of the content of large volume nuclear waste; Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) as an innovative technique to characterize outgassing of radioactive waste. An overview of the project and the current results are presented and discussed.
