Abstract

Mol Nuclear Waste Consultaion (MONA) has requested Belgium Nuclear Research Centre (SCN-CEN) to perform a multi-criteria analysis (MCA) for deep and surface disposal of radioactive wastes in Mol regions. MONA in assistance with SCN-CEN has selected MCA options for two low-level radioactive waste disposal that include surface repository and deep repository in the clay layers underneath the nuclear site at Mol. MONA has defined wastes controllability by performing observations of measurements of parameters to allow controlling the correct functioning of the repository and assessing the impact of the repository on environment. MCA uses logarithmic and exponential scales for accessing the inaccuracy of the inventory and the exposure of population to radiations, necessity for elaborating and maintaining an emergency plan, and consequences of worst case scenario.
