The IAEA have stated spent fuel management is one of the more important factors influencing the future of nuclear energy. With the increasing amount of nuclear waste being produced, creating and maintaining a strong interim storage programme is critical. With billions being invested in nuclear technology in the next ten years, storage must demonstrate to be safe and effective, not just to regulators, but also to the general public. The Habog facility in the Netherlands has been licensed to store nuclear waste for 100 years which demonstrates the time-consuming plans for implementing deep geological repositories. Ahead of the repository programme, international cooperation is necessary to ensure state-of-the-art interim storage strategies.

In light of this, C5 has developed the inaugural Nuclear Interim Storage International Conference. This conference has been designed to give waste management organisations, utilities, regulators, government and contractors an essential update on fast paced international developments in the form of case studies. Gather not only an insider’s view of up-to-the-minute ground-breaking waste management developments, but open up the opportunity for you to personally meet and network with you peers.

Leading authorities on nuclear waste management will share their knowledge and experiences to help you steer through 2010 and beyond, with specifically tailored case studies including:

Creating a very strong interim storage agenda before the repository programme arrives
Interim storage of spent nuclear fuel at Ignalina NPP
Recent developments in technical guidance for the management of HLW’s
Heading towards a global optimisation of waste management scenarios including waste packaging, transportation, interim storage and disposal
Safety principles for the design of up-to-date storage facilities
Measures to assure the disposability of radioactive waste following long term storage
