This e-book includes the result of a three-year study programme via a joint staff of specialists from 4 diversified european international locations. the focus of this study used to be on investigating the potential of utilizing deserted underground mines for the disposal of damaging chemical waste with negligible pollutants of our surroundings. The study paintings was once concerned with: the opportunity of utilizing deserted underground mines for disposal of harmful chemical waste with negligible toxins of our environment; the houses and behavior of waste-isolating clay fabrics and functional methods of getting ready and utilizing them; improvement of software program instruments to evaluate the steadiness, functionality and dangers linked to assorted repository ideas, contemplating the long term safeguard of the biosphere; the setting apart potential of reference repositories; different techniques for dealing with damaging chemical waste. The venture has verified that dangerous waste will be properly disposed in underground mines only if enough evaluation, making plans and layout strategies are hired. details is additionally integrated at the number of website situation, layout and development of repositories, predicting levels of infection of groundwater within the atmosphere, estimation of keeping apart capability of reference repositories, price estimation of this technique compared to another ways, and plenty of different appropriate concerns. helpful to researchers and engineers operating within the box of damaging (chemical) waste disposal, this name also will considerably reduction specialists facing nuclear waste.
