Welcome to BGZ
We are a privately-organised federal company based in Essen, Germany – and we guarantee the safe and reliable operation of the Ahaus and Gorleben interim storage facilities. On 1 January 2019, the approved, decentralised interim storage facilities at German nuclear power plant sites were also transferred to us. From 2020 on, we will also manage the twelve storage facilities for low and intermediate-level radioactive waste from German nuclear power plants. This means that in the future, BGZ will be fully responsible for all the interim storage of radioactive waste from the energy supply companies.
