This webinar presents an update to the results from the post-closure safety calculations for a generic deep horizontal borehole repository, specifically focusing on the sealing of the repository. The calculations are not derived from a specific geographic location or geological site. 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 borehole repository.
Deep Isolation begins the presentation with a brief company overview and a description of the purpose and importance of developing generic and site-specific models of the repository system and why we focused this set of calculations on the essential engineered safety components of backfilling and sealing of the borehole. Stefan Finsterle provides an overview of the report and the significance of the findings.
