Working on a shared solution for radioactive waste


Every country in Europe has to manage its own radioactive wastes responsibly. Only a few countries have developed a final solution for the most hazardous and long-lived of these wastes. This involves building deep underground geological repositories, which is currently the only safe and secure way to dispose of these waste without burdening future generations.

For some countries, building a national repository is a major challenge. These countries could work together to address the common challenges of safely managing the long-lived radioactive waste. The goal of the ERDO-WG is investigating the feasibility of implementing shared solutions.
