HLW Repository Overview

This video shows the emplacement of a waste canister deep underground (~600m) and the backfilling of the emplacement tunnel with bentonite clay. See FEBEX for research carried out at the Grimsel Test Site (GTS) on the emplacement canister in the bentonite clay.

 
The GTS underground facilities are also available to interested 3rd parties for underground testing and research. The GTS offers cost-effective access to a fully developed, well characterised underground research facility with round the year logistical support - please contact Dr. Ingo Blechschmidt, Head of the Grimsel Test Site, for further details.
