Tabloo is an initiative of ONDRAF/NIRAS (the institution responsible for safe radioactive waste management in this country), together with the partnerships STORA and MONA and their respective municipalities of Dessel and Mol.
The visitor and meeting centre enjoys a unique location, close to the site where radioactive waste will be safely and permanently disposed of.
