Approaches to waste management and disposal

The top priority for the NDA in England and Wales remains the higher hazard facilities at Sellafield, especially those associated with legacy plant and historical high level wastes, and the development of a geological dis­posal facility.

Alternative disposal options for ILW have been explored and may present safe and economic facilities for use at site or national level. In addition, the current unavoidable extended storage of higher activity wastes may result in the potential for reclassification of some wastes due to radioactive decay or volume dilution arising from unavoidable dilution due to waste condi­tioning processes. This presents potential challenges to regulation of waste management practices.
