High level objectives of the PREDIS project are:
- Develop solutions, methods, processes, technologies and demonstrators, for future treatment and conditioning of waste for which no or inadequate solutions are currently available, in order to avoid construction of new storage on sites, or
- improve existing solutions with safer, cheaper or more effective alternative processes with measurable benefits,
- Analyse criteria, parameters and specifications for materials and packages with associated Waste Acceptance Criteria (WAC) for pre-disposal and disposal activities.
These high-level objectives will be met by applying multi-disciplinary and multi-scale scientific approaches to demonstrate technical, economic and environmental feasibility of the new solutions, addressing project drivers from the end users’ points-of-view, fostering deeper cooperation between experts from many EU Member-states and across generations, training new experts in the field of pre-disposal waste management technologies and updating and revising pre-disposal guiding documents, together with the EURAD EJP executive bodies.
