Gas-bentonite interactions in Engineered Barrier Systems

A collaborative research project involving the Swiss Federal Institute of Aquatic Science and Technology, the Institute of Geological Sciences at the University of Bern, and Posiva Oy targeted gas-bentonite interactions in relation to the gas dynamics in Engineered Barrier Systems. The outcome of the study has been published in the following open access article:
