Our most recent article on gas-bentonite interactions in relation to the gas dynamics in Engineered Barrier Systems is now available on-line as open access publication:
Tomonaga, Y., Wersin, P., Rufer, D., Pastina, B., Koho, P., Ville, H., & Kipfer, R. (2022). Gas-bentonite interactions: Towards a better understanding of gas dynamics in Engineered Barrier Systems. Appl. Geochem., 138, 105205, doi:10.1016/j.apgeochem.2022.105205.
This work represents a first attempt to understand to which extent such interactions can affect the gas dynamics in deep geological repositories.
