Evaluated and estimated solubility of some elements for performance assessment of geological disposal of high-level radioactive waste using updated version of thermodynamic database

Kitamura, Akira; Doi, Reisuke; Yoshida, Yasushi*

We evaluated and estimated solubility of the 25 elements in the simulated pore waters established in the second progress report (H12) for safety assessment of geological disposal of HLW in Japan using the updated thermodynamic database (JAEA-TDB) and compared with the solubility values using the previous thermodynamic database (JNC-TDB). Furthermore, we tried to establish a technique to determine the solubility limiting solid for all target elements. It was found that most of the evaluated and estimated solubility values were not changed drastically, but the solubility values and dominant aqueous species for some elements were changed using the JAEA-TDB, e.g., due to introducing the formation constant of polynuclear hydrolysis species of zirconium and replacing the formation constant of mixed carbonatohydoxo complexes of thorium. Detail of the comparison and discussion about the evaluated and estimated solubility values between the JAEA- and the JNC- TDBs will be presented.
