Decommissioning and disposal on conference agenda in Germany
AiNT prepares 2nd Nuclear Disposal Symposium
From 23 – 25 June 2014, the Aachen Institute for Nuclear Training (AiNT) will be organizing, in Düsseldorf, the 2nd Nuclear Disposal Symposium. The event is a dialogue between experts organised to discuss the selection of a site for a geological repository to store heat-generating radioactive waste in Germany.
The main issue under discussion during the symposium will be the content and consequences of the new legal framework in Germany based on the political decisions that were taken last year. The topics covered include scientific exploration, site characterization, social acceptance and the duration of the process.
