Safe disposal is part of the safe operation of a nuclear power plant. The residual materials and radioactive waste arising from the operation and subsequent shut down of nuclear power plants need to be recycled safely or disposed of without any hazard to the environment. In Germany, GNS is in charge of all operations regarding management and disposal of the waste and residual materials from the nuclear power plants. GNS is therefore assigned a responsible duty, particularly against the background of the nuclear phase-out in Germany.

Furthermore, GNS is also successfully offering its services and products on an international level such as casks, handling technology and complete waste treatment facilities for radioactive waste.
