Disposal facilities and storage sites in France
High- and intermediate-level waste covered by the Bataille Act is concentrated at a few sites, including La Hague and Marcoule, where it is stored pending decisions about its future. Research into its disposal is being carried out at Bure in Lorraine. Very low-level waste and low- and intermediate-level short-lived waste, which presents few risks, is already disposed of definitively at three sites at Morvilliers, the Manche facility and Soulaines. There are also other smaller storage sites, some of them military.
