Joint Project Webinar on actual status of deep geological repository preparation and impact on EU taxonomy


Nuclear waste management or rather the lack of it has been the nuclear industry’s Achilles’ heel. Now more than ever industry claims having found the solution, the first Deep Geological Repositories (DGR) might start operating in the next years. The EU Taxonomy which is supposed to bring in fresh funds for nuclear construction, brought the question of spent nuclear fuel (SNF) back into the limelight when introducing the condition of having a plan for an operating waste repository by 2050, which most EU countries will not be able to fulfill for reasons both technical and financial or regarding the necessary participatory processes.

Our webinar offered the chance to hear from leading independent experts who have in-depth knowledge of the real situation on the search of repositories. 36 people from 17 countries registered for our webinar.
