BGE – the federal company for radioactive waste disposal
Our form of organisation is prescribed by the Atomic Energy Act (Section 9a, paragraph 3). This provides that the BGE is to be organised under private law. The legal form of the GmbH was chosen for this purpose. The sole shareholder of the BGE is the federal government. The federal government is also responsible for supervision.
The BGE is responsible for selecting the site for a repository for radioactive waste, especially heat-generating waste. The BGE is also the operator of the Asse II and Gorleben mines and the Konrad and Morsleben final repositories.
The BGE is represented by the Managing Directors Stefan Studt (Chair), Beate Kallenbach-Herbert, Steffen Kanitz, and Dr Thomas Lautsch.
The Management Board of the BGE is advised and monitored by a twelve-member Supervisory Board, which was appointed by former Federal Environment Minister Dr Barbara Hendricks for a four-year term in office.
