Konrad transport study: Safety analysis of the transportation of radioactive waste to the Konrad waste disposal site

Abstract

For the purpose of the study the anticipated waste transport volume and the waste properties were analysed in detail. This included information on the transport containers, waste product properties, activity inventories and local dose rates of the waste packages being transported. The envisaged practical implementation, i.e. the transport arrangements including shunting operations at the Braunschweig marshalling yard and the Beddingen interchange station, were also included. The two shipping scenarios 100% transportation by rail and 80% transportation by rail, 20% by road, which could be considered to bound the real conditions, were analysed. The relevant transport regulations contain the requirements to be met by the transport of shipping units carrying radioactive waste. In addition, the ``Konrad preliminary waste acceptance criteria`` contain activity limits for waste packages being disposed of in conjunction with further requirements relating to the properties of waste products and waste containers.
