Abstract

This article addresses the long-term corrosion behavior of high-level waste (HLW) container materials, more specifically of the outer shell of the containers. It discusses time, environmental, and materials considerations for the emplacement of HLW in geological repositories. Environmental corrosion resistance of materials planned for reducing repositories is also discussed. The article reviews the design and characterization of nuclear waste repository with an oxidizing environment surrounding the waste package.
