This report conducted by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) evaluates the technological implications of retrieval of nuclear waste from geological repositories. Beginning with an overview of the types of radioactive waste that are disposed of in engineered repository systems, the publication describes repository concepts such as layout and design and then discusses different retrieval strategies. The final section analyzes technological implications of retrievability with attention to disposal system components, waste package retrieval, and repository conditions. The report is intended for repository designers and others responsible for deep geological disposal programs for spent nuclear waste.
