The development concerns the creation of the production of containers for transportation and storage, as well as modular storage facilities for long-term storage of low and medium activity radioactive wastes, including in order to rehabilitate contaminated areas.
Unlike existing technologies for storing radioactive waste, the proposed project is based on fundamentally new materials and manufacturing technologies for containers for storing and transporting low- and medium-level waste. The radiation attenuation coefficient of the developed materials is 1.4-1.7 times higher than that of steel. According to the IAEA test results, the predicted lifetime without overload is up to 300 years. According to the results of the operation of the products in conditions of solar radiation, high humidity, industrial gas contamination, in the air and in sea water for 30 years, no traces of corrosion and degradation were detected.
Increased radiation resistance of containers; the term of operation is increased up to 10 times; increased strength indicators; the low mass of products with an equivalent volume, reduces the risk of damage during dynamic loads during transportation and storage. There are no analogues of developed containers and modular storage elements on the world market.
