ILW storage options for England and Wales

The NDA has published a Strategy Paper on optimising the number and location of Interim ILW Storage Facilities on Magnox Limited and existing EDF Energy Sites in England and Wales.

This paper is consistent with the NDA’s Integrated Waste Management (IWM) Strategy, which states that centralised and multi-site approaches should be considered where it may be advantageous. A small number of credible options have been identified, which will be taken forward for further assessment.
