Previous US/German Workshops

 
BACK
Collaborations between the US and West Germany began in the 1970′s when both countries were investigating salt for the option of radioactive waste disposal. However, technical evaluations for disposal of heat-generating waste in salt experienced a rather long hiatus in the United States subsequent to certification of the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant and issuance of […]
