Repository Research at HZDR. Sophisticated and Necessary.
In this short film the repository research at HZDR is presented. The chemists, physicists, biologists and geologists at HZDR’s Institute of Resource Ecology are investigating the migration and retention mechanisms of radionuclides. The researchers use modern spectroscopic methods in order to acquire an understanding of processes at molecular level. This important fundamental research is generating robust data which should help experts and politicians to identify potential locations for nuclear waste repositories.
