16th of November 2009 - Scientific workshop on Mechanisms of Copper Corrosion in Aqueous Environments

On the 16th of November the Swedish National Council for Nuclear Waste is organising the scientific workshop: "Mechanisms of Copper Corrosion in Aqueous Environments".

The Council gives the following motivation for the workshop:

"The purpose of the workshop is to address the fundamental understanding of the corrosion characteristics of copper regarding oxygen-free environments, and to identify what additional information is needed to assess the validity of the proposed corrosion mechanism and its implication on the containment of spent nuclear fuel in a copper canister. The goal is to discuss these issues in a scientific setting."

Date and time: 16th of November, 09.00-16.30
Location: Näringslivets hus, Storgatan 19, Stockholm
