On 25 April 2017, the operator responsibilities for the Asse II mine as well as the Konrad and Morsleben repositories were transferred to the Federal Company for Radioactive Waste Disposal (Bundesgesellschaft für Endlagerung mbH, BGE). This website of the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) will therefore no longer be updated and displays the status as on 24 April 2017. You will find current information at the BGE: www.bge.de

INFO ASSE in Remlingen INFO ASSE in RemlingenINFO ASSE provides a multifaceted information offer

Info Asse has been providing since January 2009 first-hand information on the status and progress of work and planning relating to the decommissioning of the Asse II mine. Using films, computer animations, two three-dimensional model, plates and other materials, the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) visualises the background and further steps in terms of decommissioning the Asse mine. A digital construction log informs about work being undertaken underground. In the café and meeting area of the info centre, visitors are offered space for exchanging information and discussing with BfS personnel.

Lectures, briefings, and discussions can take place here. The interested public are invited to use and further develop this place of communication about topics concerning the Asse mine and to catch up on the issue. Upon request, the Info Asse staff are also available for doing presentations at schools or events.
