Success in radioactive waste management is believed to be the key to successful development of nuclear technology in a country. For this reason, this research group focuses on developing methods, materials that can be used in radioactive waste management, nuclear safety and safeguards in waste management.

To get feedback for the research results obtained, the researchers in this group actively participate in scientific meeting forums both nationally and internationally. This group also acts as a companion and resource person in the development of radioactive waste management at the regional and national levels carried out by the Regional Government, BATAN and BAPETEN.
