The following activity outlines are draft document that will evolve over time as the projects progress.

Meeting of JA6a on “cement-organics-radionuclide-interactions”

Organics are present in cement based materials as: (1) Waste components, and (2) Organic cement additives, partly in significant concentrations especially in low pH cements.

The organic components as well as their degradation products may interact with radionuclides forming soluble complexes affecting the radionuclide source term. The TSWG CORI will discuss among others following topics:

  • General and concept specific issues, such as organic inventories in disposal projects, waste, constructions materials, etc.
  • Transformation of organic polymers into aqueous ligands by various degradation processes
  • Interactions of organic degradation products with respect to aqueous complexation, solubility and sorption.
  • Redox processes in the presence of organics, microbial processes and relevance of organic/iron interactions.

The TSWG meeting on cement-organics-radionuclide-interactions (CORI) will be held

Tuesday 10th - Wednesday 11th March 2015 (“lunchtime to lunchtime”)
Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), Institute for Nuclear Waste Disposal (INE),
Karlsruhe, Germany.

The aim of the CORI meeting is (i) introducing key aspects of the topic via 2-3 invited lectures, (ii) have short presentations from the participants on specific interests and perspectives, and (iii) discuss about future research required in this field. The meeting will be open for any interested group. The CORI meeting is expected to provide for a broad overview on current activities and interests, and allow prioritizing topics and research activities which would eventually benefit from a joint research approach.

Please communicate your interest in participating the CORI TSWG meeting in Karlsruhe by
February 13th 2015, by email to
