Geologic disposal of radioactive waste produced by application of partitioning-transmutation technology to nuclear fuel cycle

Nakayama, Shinichi ; Morita, Yasuji ; Nishihara, Kenji ; Oigawa, Hiroyuki 

The effects of partitioning-transmutation (PT) technology to waste management was assessed based on the chemical and physical properties and estimated amounts of radioactively contaminated wastes that may be generated in the JAERI's PT cycle. The volume of high-level waste after partitioning was about a third that of non-partitioned vitrified waste form. The required repository area was about sixth, which implies increase in capacity of geologic repositories.
