Stadel drew nationwide attention a year ago – but then?
One year after the siting proposal: development in the region to date and next steps.
“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.
“Working together towards the best solution”
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.
What Nagra can learn from the ancient Romans
In a deep geological repository, disposal canisters will safely enclose the waste for several thousands of years. Over time, the canisters will begin to rust. What chemical processes will take place then, and how and where will the rust spread? Two-thousand-year-old nails are to provide some answers to these questions.
