Multipurpose intermediate storage building (EIP) in Marcoule
The reprocessing techniques currently used in La Hague were originally developed at the facility in Marcoule. Vitrified waste produced in Marcoule are stored there pending disposal. A multipurpose intermediate storage building (EIP) was built for other types of waste, including long-lived intermediate-level waste (ILW-LL). The purpose of the EIP building, which began operating in 2000, is to relocate and centralise miscellaneous interim storage facilities over the period 2003-2020, during which site cleanup operations will be conducted in Marcoule.
