The Underground Research Laboratory

This working paper provides a brief overview of numerous official documents, scientific articles, reports by research institutes, and other printed matter concerning construction of the radioactive waste disposal facility.

The paper summarizes research plans in the coming decades, as well as the viewpoint of independent experts who disagree with Rosatom’s experts on the strategy for disposing of radioactive waste and the choice of the site for constructing the underground research laboratory and, possibly, the deep geological repository.

The working paper’s objective is to inform the public of what work and research was carried out before the decision to build an underground research laboratory was made.
