The radioactive waste to be delivered to an interim storage or final disposal site has to be packaged into suitable types of waste containers. Depending on the kind of waste, the packagings are cylindrical or box-shaped with different types of construction, size, wall thickness and weight. The specific requirements imposed on the container types are laid down in the corresponding storage conditions, for instance the final storage conditions for the German Konrad repository for ILW/LLW. GNS develops and manufactures such packagings for which unlimited suitability is proven as part of the type tests.
