The temporary storage of household and industrial waste and the permanent disposal of nuclear waste requires special measures aimed at protecting people and the environment.
Support is provided to our customers in various forms and covers every project phase, including assistance with obtaining the necessary permits and dealing with local operators and authorities. The phase preceding the site selection includes the analysis of potential storage sites and relies on all the geo-engineering technologies available. When it comes to the actual storage, the focus is on all the barriers required between the stored product and the environment. The most advanced underground techniques are deployed for storage at geological depths.
Projects involving the storage of nuclear waste require structures developed for a service life span of between 100 and 300 years for which the latest developments in the field of concrete structure ageing are deployed and complex 3D models are used to calculate seismic loads.
