This is SKB
Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Co
SKB, Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company, is tasked with managing Swedish nuclear and radioactive waste in a safe way. In 2009 we selected a site for the Spent Fuel Repository and in 2011 we submitted the applications to build the repository in Forsmark.
Nuclear power companies in Sweden jointly established the Swedish Nuclear Fuel and Waste Management Company (SKB) in the 1970s. SKB’s assignment is to manage and dispose of all radioactive waste from Swedish nuclear power plants in such a way as to secure maximum safety for human beings and the environment. The assignment is so extensive that we see it as one of Sweden’s biggest environmental-protection projects.

Final repository for spent nuclear fuel
On March 16th 2011, after three decades of carrying out research, developing technology and conducting surveys, SKB applied to the authorities for permission to build a repository for spent nuclear fuel in Forsmark and an encapsulation plant in Oskarshamn. It basically concerns the final solution for the spent fuel from Swedish nuclear power plants.
