The geochemical perturbation of Boom Clay due to the NaNO3 plume released from Eurobitum bituminised radioactive waste: status 2013: Topical report

Research output: Report/bookER - External reportpeer-review

Institutes & Expert groups


In this topical report we discuss the most important results and insights from experiments in which we have investigated several geochemical perturbations of Boom Clay and some redox-active Boom Clay components by NaNO3. These tests have been performed in the framework of the following research projects at SCK•CEN: 'General Migration Studies' (2001-2003), 'Geochemical Perturbations in Boom Clay' (2004-2008), and 'EUROCOMPAT' (2006-2008 and 2009-2014).
