Welcome to the Institute for Nuclear Waste Disposal

The Institute for Nuclear Waste Disposal of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT-INE) is focused on research concerning the safety of nuclear waste disposal. In addition, the decommissioning of nuclear facilities and geoenergy is part of the research portfolio. The research and development work of KIT-INE is integrated into the Helmholtz programme "Nuclear Waste Management, Safety and Radiation Research" (NUSAFE) and the Helmholtz programme "Materials and Technologies for the Energy Transition" (MTET). The research at KIT-INE is part of the KIT Energy Center.

The R&D work covers the following areas:


Disposal Systems / Components


Radionuclide Speciation





11th International Symposium on Technetium and Rhenium – Science and Utilization
