Hyperalkaline Plume in Fractured Rock (HPF) - Radiochemical laboratory programme of sorption and solubility in high pH solutions (PSI)

Laboratory experiments designed to provide input data for the final injection have been carried out by PSI. This has examined sorption of radionuclides in the equipment and determination of solubility limits in high pH solutions. Further details to follow.


The GTS underground facilities are also available to interested 3rd parties for underground testing and research. The GTS offers cost-effective access to a fully developed, well characterised underground research facility with round the year logistical support - please contact Dr. Ingo Blechschmidt, Head of the Grimsel Test Site, for further details.
