The RW section of the Radiation Protection group manages a program which consists of creating an industrialized process capable of increasing the disposal capacity. The program is structured along 4 main axis:

  • Creating a new treatment center for very low level waste (dose rate below 200 microSv/h) ;
  • Introducing clearance from regulatory control (only possible in Switzerland) ;
  • Ramping up elimination of very low level waste;
  • Refurbishing the current radioactive waste interim storage, according to state-of-the-art techniques.
