These wastes are characterised by high-levels of radioactivity, have a component of very long-lived waste nuclides and are heat generating. The activity of these wastes generally ranges from 1016 to 1018 Bq/t. 9 Intermediate-level waste (ILW)which includes a diverse range of materials such as ion exchange resins and metal wastes from normal reactor operations and spent fuel management issues. Plutonium High-level waste ( H L W ) w h i c h includes spent fuel and the solidified forms of the liquid reprocessing.

It is one of the few examples of an operating geological repository, currently accepting wastes. 8 to 10-7 m/s. Locating the repository beneath the seabed ensures a very low hydraulic gradient and, as a consequence, low groundwater flow rates. At the current rate of isostatic uplift of the land of around 6 mm/yr (due to glacial rebound), it will take around 1000 years for the repository area to become dry land. In the short to medium-term, however, while the site is covered by the sea, the possibility of inadvertent human intrusion is clearly minimised.

The most significant waste, structure both in terms of volume and activity, are ion exchange resins which are used to recover radionuclides from liquid wastes. These liquid radioactive due to neutron irradiation by the reactor core, while other components, such as primary coolant piping, may contain residual wastes are generated during radioactive liquids or solids. g. g. laundry and personnel decontamination), Additional radioactive liquid streams are produced components will be scheduled for disposal in a deep geological repository after suitable packaging or will be routed for shallow burial.
