The session brings together a range of contributions from research and industry on aspects of storage and disposal in the geological subsurface. A keynote lecture, which focuses in particular on the challenges posed by the energy transition to the use of the subsurface, will introduce the series of presentations. Further contributions deal with the different potential storage and barrier formations salt, sandstone, claystone and crystalline and present ongoing projects as well as current concepts and research approaches.

We are regularly involved in various research projects and surveys. The Stifterverband has invited us to take part in a Federal Ministry of Education and Research survey on research and development in the industry in 2019. We were pleased to accept this invitation and may therefore bear this seal.



Important information on the current situation

The current developments present all of us all with completely new challenges. Our first priority is to protect the health and safety of our employees and customers and to make our contribution to containing the virus.

We are strictly following the recommendations and instructions of the Robert Koch Institute and the health authorities. To reduce the risk of infection at all our sites, many colleagues have been working from home since 16 March. Business trips have been reduced to the absolute minimum, and meetings are being held as video or telephone conferences.

We will of course remain available to you at all times and will continue to handle all projects and inquiries with the reliability you are accustomed to and adapt them to the current situation.

Stay healthy, take care of yourself and support each other. Together we can do this!
