The facilities are shut down for maintenance. The facilities of vitrification and hulls compaction resumed their production.

Since the beginning of the year,803 tons have been processed for recycling.

  • In the vitrification facilities, 9 canisters of vitrified fission products(1) have been produced.

              Since the beginning of the year,391 canisters have been produced.

  • The facility of hulls compaction produced 43 canisters of compacted residues.
