Abstract: This paper presents results from deterministic calculations of radionuclide migration in a deep geological environment. The concept assumes single canister with spent nuclear fuel situated in bentonite (near-field) and surrounded by crystalline host rock (far-field). The results are presented in the form of release rates from the near-field and far-field, which contains also a part of advective release from the system of two single fractures. Additionally, radiological risk is evaluated in the form of dose rates for a water drinking scenario for an exposed population group. The analyses have been done by using the methodologies and computer codes used at the Institute for Energy EC-JRC in the Netherlands and the Mining Institute KSC RAS in Russia.
