Low-level long-lived waste (LLW-LL)
There was 87,000 m3 of this low-level long-lived waste in France according to the inventory drawn up by ANDRA at the end of 2010. This total included radium-bearing waste and graphite waste that has already been taken out of dismantled graphite-moderated gas-cooled reactors, the rest of which will be counted in future inventories. This waste is awaiting a final management solution from Andra’s research teams. Andra has recommended disposal in a clay layer fifteen meters below ground level. No decision has been made on the siting of this facility to date. ANDRA
