Nuclear Waste

Geological formations

The disposal of the conditioned waste is usually carried out in a mine. The space between the waste containers will be filled up and the repository will be closed upon reaching the storage capacity provided for. No monitoring is planned after the closure.

Any waste with a radionuclide inventory with shorter half-life periods will also be stored in the geological repository.
