DELTARES, THE NETHERLANDS
TEMPORARY STORAGE CONCEPT
Since 2008 Deltares is an independent institute for applied research and specialist advice in the field of water, soil and the subsurface. They have a wide experience in biochemical and geochemical processes in the subsurface, such as biodegradation of contaminants, effects of these processes on the environment and process modelling. They have our own laboratory and field characterisation facilities (for biochemical, geotechnical and geophysical research purposes) and expertise in adapting soil properties, eco-engineering concepts, eco-dynamic design and ecosystem services. Furthermore, Deltares has an extensive experience in participating in international research programmes, incl. EU FP7.
In relationship to ELFM Deltares expertise can contribute to development of the Temporary Storage concept, in-situ conditioning of stored waste and research and application of eco-engineering (green) concepts.
