Visit to the nuclear waste repository SFR, Sweden

23 May, 2019 150 kilometers north of Stockholm you find not only the Forsmark nuclear power plant with three reactors, but also the site where a final repository for high-level radioactive waste in Sweden is suggested to be built, along with an already existing final repository for short-lived radioactive waste (SFR). To learn more, primarily about the existing repository, and in the company of Mr Igor Lozhnikov from the Leningrad nuclear power plant in Russia, the Atomic Heritage research team visited SFR’s facilities, which are located in the bedrock under the Baltic Sea.
