Packages for disposal (minor actinides)
To give an example of the advantages offered by partitioning radioactive species, we have removed the fission products with a high thermal output (caesium and strontium) from the standard package so that they can be conditioned separately in a second package. The more compact package destined for disposal would contain mainly long-lived but not very mobile minor actinides. After 35 years it would release only the equivalent amount of heat to an electric light bulb.
