Radiocarbon (14C) is potentially significant in terms of release from deep geological disposal of radioactive waste and incorporation into the biosphere. In this study we investigated the transfer of soil-derived C into two plant species by using a novel approach, where the uptake of soil-derived C into newly cultivated plants was studied on year leftover peat in order to Author: Soroush Majlesi, Jukka Juutilainen, Anne Kasurinen, Promise Mpamah, Tatiana Trubnikova, Markku Oinon. The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority Radioactive Waste Management Directorate (NDA RWMD) current approach to representing the biosphere is described in the Biosphere Status Report (Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, a) that supports the disposal system safety case (DSSC) (Nuclear Decommissioning Authority, b).The report draws together more Cited by: 3. Geological disposal was defined in a Collective Opinion of the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA) Radioactive Waste Management Committee entitled ‘The Environmental and Ethical Basis of Geological Disposal’ (OECD NEA, ).According to page 16 of that publication, geological disposal is provided by a system that will: (1) “isolate the wastes from the biosphere for Cited by: Spent nuclear fuel and high-level radioactive waste can be disposed in deep horizontal drillholes in sedimentary, metamorphic or igneous rocks. Horizontal drillhole disposal has safety, operational and economic benefits: the repository is deep in the brine-saturated zone far below aquifers in a reducing environment of formations that can be shown to have been isolated from Cited by: 1.
