Geological Disposal Facility

The government has published the White Paper setting out the revised process for siting a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) for the long term management of higher activity radioactive wastes.  We would encourage every local authority to read the paper and consider their opportunity to engage in this process.  NuLeAF would be happy to provide impartial advice and information, formally or informally.  Please do not hesitate to contact us.  

UK Strategy for the management of NORM wastes
