Dealing with conflicting goals and getting young people involved
Collaboration improves the project of the century of deep geological disposal – the attendees at the “Dialogue on the Deep Geological Repository” event all agreed on this. But where are the pitfalls, what problems could arise?
Why Nagra is counting lizards
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.
Long-term marking or: science is more important than fiction
How do we pass on information about the deep geological repository to our descendants in a way that they can understand it? In Sweden, an initial reply to this question is currently being developed. Switzerland is following suit.
“When we are done here, the site will be in as good a condition as it was before – maybe even a little better.”
Dismantling is a success when no one notices a difference from before. This applies to dismantling a drill site and will also apply to the surface of the future deep geological repository.
