The D&WM programme has three phases:
- Waste management. Decommissioning work is limited to specific studies and licensing procedures. We reinforced the existing waste management infrastructures. Where possible, we remove nuclear and special materials (which no longer support the site activities).
- Treatment and conditioning of existing waste and at the recovery, collection and off-site shipment of irradiated and nuclear material.
- Decommissioning of the nuclear installations, site clean-up and remediation up to the "green field".
"Green field" is a status where no significant radioactive hazard remains.
