How our expertise in the disposal of nuclear waste can make you more knowledgeable
Whether your organisation specialises in groundwater exploitation, geothermal energy, environmental remediation, or the disposal of radioactive waste, the subsurface should hold no secrets for you.
SCK CEN has been researching the possible long-term management solutions for nuclear waste for many years. This is also of interest to you, as a non-nuclear professional. With more than 40 years of experience in hydrogeological research, our scientists have amassed a wealth of knowledge, enabling them to solve your problems.
3 services to get to the bottom of your question
The research activities of SCK CEN lead to valuable insights to support the performance and safety analyses of federal supervisory bodies and companies with various studies in the subsurface. SCK CEN is continuously acquiring and increasing its knowledge.
We can estimate the fate of contaminants in the subsurface. For instance, we investigate how potential releases from a nuclear waste disposal facility migrate through soil or aquifers.
So you can count on plenty of knowledge and experience in building models on different scales and coupling processes.
Based on 40 years of hydrogeological research, SCK CEN has extensive experience in using different types of subsurface data to improve the quality of the various models.
We are continuously working on improving groundwater flow model parameterisation at multiple scales.
Advanced calibration, validation and verification
SCK CEN has extensive expertise in optimisation and uncertainty quantification, even with computationally intensive models.
What’s in it for you? Enabling the explicit representation of aquifer heterogeneity in probabilistic process model inversion, among others.
