Short Information about the Konrad repository
The Konrad repository is the first repository in Germany that was licensed under nuclear law. It is located in Salzgitter (Lower Saxony). The approval process lasted for about 20 years. Permission for the construction and operation of the repository was granted in 2007 and the former iron ore mine is currently being converted into a repository. Up to 303,000 m3 of radioactive waste with negligible heat generation will be permanently stored here.
You'll find more information about the Konrad repository in the Info Konrad. You can also see for yourself what the situation is like underground during a tour of the mine.
