Nuclear waste disposal research

GTK participates actively in researching the choice of area and disposal site for high-level nuclear waste. We have the most comprehensive and vast collection of data on Finland’s bedrock. This made a nation-wide search for the choice of area possible.

We are conducting diverse investigations that act as the basis for evaluating the geological long-term safety of the disposal and other factors that have to be taken into consideration in planning and constructing the underground facilities. We utilise the expertise of GTK’s entire staff and our comprehensive selection of geophysical, mineralogical and geochemical equipment in all research work.

We offer the following services

  • Research on the choice of area and disposal site
  • Geological research into disposal safety
