EURAD-WP-Gas: Mechanistic understanding of gas transport in clay materials

At a glance

  • Project leader : Dr. Lukas Keller
  • Project status : completed
  • Funding partner : EU and other international programmes (European Joint Programme on Radioactive Waste Management EURAD)
  • Contact person : Lukas Keller


The main objectives of this project are: -

  • To improve the mechanistic understanding of gas transport processes in natural and engineered clay materials, their couplings with the mechanical behaviour and their impact on the properties of these materials.
  • To evaluate the gas transport regimes that can be active at the scale of a geological disposal system and their potential impact on barrier integrity and repository performance.
