The inventory of radioactive waste in Germany is regularly recorded by the Federal Office for Radiation Protection. The conditioned waste volume with negligible heat generation amounted to 130,900 m³ at the end of 2011. The volume of heat producing waste amounted to about. 2,000 m³. According to a current prediction the waste volume by the year 2060 is estimated to approx. 300,000 m³ for waste with negligible heat generation and of 28,100 m³ for heat producing waste.
