Decommissioning of nuclear facilities

— filed under: ,

The decommissioning of a nuclear installation such as a power plant or research reactor is the final step in its life cycle. It involves all activities from shut-down and removal of nuclear material to the environmental restoration of the site. The whole process can extend over a period of up to 30 years. By 2025, it is estimated that over a third of the EU's currently operational reactors will be at the end of their life cycle and in need of shut-down.
