En­gi­neered Bar­rier Sys­tems (EBS)

Engineered Barrier Systems (EBS)

The safety of final disposal is based on the multi-barrier principle where a system of natural and engineered barriers ensures long-term safety. The bedrock serves as a natural barrier. The EBS components include disposal canister, buffer and backfill materials and finally different closure components.

‍Posiva Solutions can support Clients in choosing or reviewing the most suitable approaches and methodologies for their EBS design, material selection, barrier manufacturing and installation.
