Abstract Although Denmark has no nuclear power reactors, research related to nuclear energy has been performed at RISO National Laboratory for more than 30 yr. The waste management plant at RISO and the associated storage facilities function as the national center for radioactive waste management in Denmark. No disposal of radioactive waste, however, has so far been carried out. Two-thirds of the collected and processed waste comes from the RISO laboratory itself, which is home to the heavy-water-moderated research reactor, DR3. Most of the long-lived radioisotopes in the stored waste are due to postirradiation studies of spent fuel performed in the now decommissioned hot cells. This report describes the bituminized waste characterization.
