The purpose of a deep geological repository is to protect people and the environment from our radioactive waste far into the distant future. However, the construction and operation of the repository must also be compatible with humans and the environment. To ensure this, our project of the century must undergo an Environmental Impact Assessment.
At today’s annual general meeting of Nagra in Bern, the representatives of the Cooperative acknowledged the successful outcome of the challenging business year of 2022 by approving all requests submitted by Nagra’s Board of Directors. The project of the century of deep geological disposal is now entering the licensing phase.
