European Underground Research Infrastructure for Disposal of nuclear waste in Clay Environment
Welcome to EURIDICE
Research into the safety and feasibility of radioactive waste disposal in clay
A large-scale experiment designed to study the effect of heat on a deep clay formation.
Some deep clay layers in the Belgian bedrock appear to be highly suitable for the final disposal of radioactive waste.
Underground research laboratory
This is where industrial technologies are developed for disposal of radioactive waste in deep clay.
EURIDICE has its own exhibition and its underground laboratory is open to visitors.
