Kłeczek Z. Radomski A. Zeljaś D.


Underground warehousing as elements of environmental engineering are widespread in many developed countries all over the world. The cost analysis of construction and operating of underground storage yards showed the high effectiveness of these investments in comparison with the traditional surface facilities, even if strategic, military and environ- mental issues are not taken into consideration.
In the raport the essence and rules of underground storing are presented. On the basis of classification of wastes the world solutions of the underground warehousing were analyzed showing its ecological advantage over the surface storage of wastes. In the special chapter the radioactive wastes storing in the Earth interior, where the general rule is the effective isolation of radioactive wastes from biosphere for long time, is described.
