Demonstration of Plugs and Seals (DOPAS)

Fourteen nuclear waste management organisations and research institutes from eight European countries are participating in a technology development project for testing plugging and sealing systems for geological disposal facilities for radioactive waste – the DOPAS project (“Full-Scale Demonstration of Plugs and Seals”). The project is built around a set of full-scale underground demonstrations, laboratory experiments, and performance assessment studies.
