Nuclear Waste Transport

Personal Project

Between 1996 and 2011, highly radioactive waste was transported from the nuclear fuel reprocessing plant La Hague in France to the interim storage facility in Gorleben, Germany. The transports were accompanied by heavy protests, blockades and sabotage. The resistance was not against the return of German nuclear waste to Germany, but against the ongoing production of new waste as well as politicians ignoring the fact that the planned permanent storage facility at Gorleben is considered unsuitable. The pictures were taken in Lüneburg, during the last transport in 2011. More radioactive waste is expected to be transportet back to Germany from the Sellafield (UK) site in the future.
