Waste Disposal

Nuclear powerplant Mochovce cooling towers

Accumulation and liquidation of waste of different types is a long-term environmental problem of present times. One of the most serious and actual problems is storage (temporary and permanent) of radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel coming from atomic power plants. In Slovakia, this so-called back-end of the nuclear fuel cycle is covered by JAVYS.

PC&G participates together with other organizations on the program of permanent radioactive waste disposal development in Slovak republic.

We are focused foremost on following areas:

  • geological aspects of  selection of suitable locality for permanent disposal of radioactive waste
  • actualization of selection and evaluation of localities suitable for construction of deep geological repository
  • preparation of materials necessary for proposals of national program for disposal of spent nuclear fuel and radioactive waste
  • plans of work for forthcoming 10 year period
