Abstract: In Europe spent nuclear fuel discharged from light water reactors (LWR) is considered either as waste or as recyclable material. Whatever the fate of the spent fuel is, a safe final disposal of high level nuclear waste is a mandatory task of the EU Member States. In this context different waste management options are under consideration and supporting research activities are conducted worldwide. At the Joint Research Centre - Institute for Transuranium Elements (JRC-ITU) research activities address safety aspects of direct spent fuel disposal in a geological repository as well as of partitioning and transmutation (P&T) options.
