Welcome to the BGE, the federal company for radioactive waste disposal
Welcome to the Internet site of the BGE, where we inform interested citizens about the tasks of the BGE, the search for repository sites for mainly heat-generating radioactive waste and other BGE projects.
Info Centres at the Asse II shaft mine, Konrad final repository and Morsleben final repository sites explain to all interested parties the current status of the projects, providing information material, exhibitions and the opportunity for discussion with staff. Mine tours are also possible.
Morsleben repository used to be a potash and rock salt mine. It is over 100 years old. 36,754 m³ of low and intermediate-level radioactive waste were permanently stored there or stored intermediately in small quantities between 1971 and 1991 and from 1994 to 1998. The repository is to be closed with its inventory in place.
