Fuel and waste transport leaflet is updated

Dounreay has updated an information leaflet that explains the difference between nuclear fuel and radioactive waste, and how each is being managed as part of the closure of the site.

The latest edition of "Radioactive Materials at Dounreay"  has been updated to reflect:

  • the start of transfers of breeder from Dounreay to Sellafield
     
  • the decision by the NDA to remove the remainder of the fuel from the site
     
  • the start of collections by Belgian authorities of their intermediate-level waste from Dounreay.
