German Atomic Waste Site Search May Cost $2.1 Billion, FTD Says

Nov. 30 (Bloomberg) -- Germany’s search for a permanent nuclear waste storage site may take 18 years and cost about 1.6 billion euros ($2.1 billion), the Financial Times Deutschland reported, citing a government document.

Examining each potential site will cost about 400 million euros, the FTD said, citing a reply from the Environment Ministry to a request from the Green Party. The government may initially scrutinize as many as four sites, the newspaper said.
