Safety in Depth: Calculations for a Deep Horizontal Drillhole Repository (US)

Date: Wednesday, May 12, 2020

In this webinar, Deep Isolation shared the initial results from the post-closure safety calculations for a generic deep horizontal drillhole repository. Generic calculations are a valuable and necessary step in developing a safety analysis approach that will eventually support the safety assessment of a deep horizontal drillhole repository.

Webinar Presenters:

Elizabeth Muller Headshot

Elizabeth Muller, CEO of Deep Isolation, gave a brief overview of Deep Isolation and discussed the importance of developing generic and site-specific models of the repository system.

Stefan Finsterle Headshot

Stefan Finsterle, hydrogeologist for Deep Isolation, provided an overview of the report and the significance of the findings.  A Q&A session followed.
