Short summary
Since 2013, the search for a site for a HAW-repository has started again in Germany with the entry into force of the first Site Selection Act (StandAG). Compared to repository concepts in steep inclined salt (domes) or in clay or crystalline formations, a repository in bedded salt offers considerable long-term safety advantages due to a site-specific, natural multi-barrier system consisting of the host rock salt (with the ewG) and overlaying sequences of additional salt and salt clay seams.
