Kd setting approaches for Horonobe mudstone systems; Applications of TSMs and semi-quantitative estimation procedures

Ochs, M.*; Tachi, Yukio  ; Trudel, D.*; Suyama, Tadahiro*

JAEA has developed the setting approaches of sorption parameter (Kd) for site-specific conditions, to derive reliable parameter for performance assessment (PA) of geological disposal. These approaches include any transferring procedures from experimental conditions to PA conditions through expert judgments, semi-quantitative estimation procedures and thermodynamic sorption models (TSMs). The present report focused on illustrating a range of example calculations regarding the derivation of Kd values and their uncertainties based on semi-quantitative estimation procedures and TSMs. The Kd values of four key radionuclides, Cs, Ni, Am and Th were derived for Horonobe mudstone systems. These Kd-setting exercises allowed to estimate the magnitude of sorption under the site-specific conditions, and to identify some critical gaps in the existing data and process understanding. The possibilities of extending such approaches to further rock types including granitic rocks were also discussed.
