Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company (SKB) is responsible for safe management of all nuclear waste arising in Sweden. Over the past few decades SKB has built and operated a national underground final repository for low- and medium level wastes (SFR) generated by nuclear power plants, hospitals etc., a central interim storage facility for spent fuel (CLAB) and a specially-built ship for transportation of the wastes and the spent fuel (M/S Sigyn). SKB has also planned, constructed and is operating an underground research facility – the Äspö Hard Rock Laboratory and an encapsulation laboratory. These facilities are used to execute essential research, development and demonstration before construction of the deep repository and the encapsulation plant.
