Swiss confirm favoured location for $21 billion nuclear waste

Switzerland confirmed on Monday that its favoured location for a $20.94 billion underground nuclear waste storage site was an area north of Zurich, close to the border with Germany, Qazet.az reports according to Reuters.

The company behind the project to store the country's nuclear waste for at least the next 200,000 years, the National Cooperative for the Disposal of Radioactive Waste (NAGRA), proposed the area of northern Laegern for the site, which is due to become operational in 2050.
