Very low-level waste (VLLW)
There was 360,000 m3 of this very low-level waste in France according to the inventory prepared by ANDRA at the end of 2010. For VLLW there is no need to distinguish between short-lived and long-lived radioelements, because the radioactivity is very low to begin with. That is why this waste is already disposed of on an industrial scale.
