SKB’s RD&D Programme 2019 published


SKB has published its RD&D Programme 2019.

The Swedish power industry has been generating electricity by means of nuclear power for more than 50 years.  Under the Nuclear Activities Act, the holder of a licence for nuclear activities is responsible for ensuring the safe management and final disposal of nuclear waste and spent nuclear fuel arising from the activities.  The holder of a licence is also responsible for the comprehensive research and development work necessary for this.  In RD&D Programme 2019, the licensees for the Swedish nuclear power plants and Svensk Kärnbränslehantering (SKB), which is responsible for the management and final disposal of the nuclear waste and the spent nuclear fuel on behalf of its owners, present their plans for research, development and demonstration during the period 2020–2025.  The programme consists of three parts:

  • Part I Activities and plan of action.
  • Part II Waste and final disposal.
  • Part III Decommissioning of nuclear facilities.
