The 5 categories for radioactive waste management
ANDRA has defined 5 waste categories for the management of radioactive waste: high-level vitrified waste conditioned in steel containers; intermediate-level waste (e.g. the hulls and end-pieces of fuel assemblies); low-level short-lived waste; very low-level waste consisting of objects contaminated by contact with radioactive products; and finally low-level long-lived waste.
