Responsibility for Humans and the Environment

In the past, as a former nuclear research centre, Forschungszentrum Jülich operated two research reactors and was involved in the technological development of the neighbouring high-temperature reactor operated by AVR (Arbeitsgemeinschaft Versuchsreaktor GmbH). Today, Jülich is still active in research areas where nuclear techniques play a key role, such as nuclear medicine. Forschungszentrum Jülich is therefore obliged to ensure that the radioactive waste for which it is responsible is stored and disposed of properly in compliance with legislation. In so doing, protecting employees, the population, and the environment is top priority.
