Welcome to MKG, the Swedish NGO Office for Nuclear Waste Review

MKG, the Swedish NGO Office for Nuclear Waste Review, is a non-governmental environmental organization established in 2004 mainly by the Swedish Society for Nature Conservation [SSNC] to work specifically with nuclear waste issues. At present the following NGOs are members of MKG: Nature and Youth SwedenFriends of the Earth Sweden, The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation in the county of KalmarThe Swedish Society for Nature Conservation in the county of UppsalaOss – the local Public Opinion group for Safe Final Storage of Radioactive WasteThe Peoples' Movement Against Nuclear Power And Weapons and The Swedish Society for Nature Conservation.

MKG strives to assure that method, as well as location, of a Swedish repository for the disposal of spent nuclear fuel and other radioactive waste meets the highest possible long-term standards for health and environment.

The purpose of this web site is to provide an unbiased insight into the Swedish judicial review of the current application to build a final repository for our spent nuclear fuel. We also want to give clear and accessible information on the nuclear industry’s proposed KBS method and about the alternative method of Deep Borehole Disposal.

As an active participant in the consultation process, we have reached the conclusion that the alternative method Deep Borehole Disposal should be given proper consideration and evaluation, as the possible benefits when compared to the heavily critiqued KBS method appear to be substantial.
