|Vitrified waste packages|
This container has been filled with vitrified high-level waste in the vitrification facility at the La Hague reprocessing plant. The glass incorporating the fission products and actinides releases heat, which means that cooling is required inside the ventilated shafts where the packages are stored awaiting future disposal.
