The News That Matters about the Nuclear Industry Fukushima Chernobyl Mayak Three Mile Island Atomic Testing Radiation Isotope

Dounreay nuclear waste clean-up- an enormous job, for just a temporary solution.

WORK to clean-up the radioactive waste in the shaft and silo at Dounreay
is underway and has been described as “one of the most significant
decommissioning projects” at the site. Radioactive waste was historically
consigned to the 65-metre deep shaft and the silo, an underground waste
storage vault, over several decades starting in the late 1950s. Now the
higher activity waste must be retrieved and repackaged, suitable for
long-term storage in a safe modern facility.
