How and where does Nagra carry out research on the disposal of radioactive waste? We would be pleased to show you.
Guided tours of the Mont Terri Rock Laboratory
As the primary research partner, we will gladly guide you through the Mont Terri Rock Laboratory, which is operated by swisstopo, the Swiss Federal Office of Topography. Here, research is being conducted directly in the Opalinus Clay. This is the rock that will eventually host the deep geological repository.

Nagra proposes “Nördlich Lägern” as the site for a repository
Nördlich Lägern is the safest site for a deep geological repository: here, the rock deep below the surface best confines the radioactive waste for a very long time. Nagra’s investigations demonstrate this. The siting proposal is an important milestone in the project of the century of deep geological disposal.
