First containers sealed into Dounreay low level waste vaults

First containers sealed into Dounreay low level waste vaults. Dounreay’s
waste team is carrying out the first in a series of campaigns to seal the
waste into place in the low level waste vaults.

As part of the waste disposal process, the spaces between the containers in the low level waste
vault are being filled with grout. The team undertook a series of trials to
confirm that the grout would readily flow between the containers and also
tested the membranes that will be used to seal the grout shutters. A first
campaign of grouting has now been completed within the vault and 16 waste
packages have been sealed into their final positions. Further grouting
campaigns of increasing size are planned.
