Challenges and approach to a geological 3-D modeling workflow to identify potential areas for a repository for high-level radioactive waste.

In 2020, the Bundesgesellschaft für Endlagerung mbH (BGE) published the Sub-areas Interim Report, identifying areas with favorable geological conditions for a deep repository site for storage of high-level radioactive waste in Germany. One key step was the identification of geological settings, where potential host rock formations (claystone, rock salt and crystalline rock) fulfil legally defined minimum requirements, e.g. depth (> 300 m), areal extension (varying between host rocks), and vertical thickness (> 100 m). Therefore,...
