Exploring the Wolsung LILW Disposal Center in South Korea

in Program

A national plan for radioactive waste management should consider all levels of radioactive waste, from low and intermediate level waste (LILW) to high level waste (HLW) and spent nuclear fuel. Stimson experts Cindy Vestergaard and Trinh Le continue their exploration underground at the repository for LILW in the Republic of Korea – Wolsung LILW Disposal Center (WLDC). The facility has a unique combination of underground silos and near-surface disposal facilities.

These are their field notes:
