The NDA’s National Waste Inventory Manager Hannah Paterson reflects on a recent international meeting to discuss status and trends in radioactive waste management.
Marie Berggren, from the Swedish municipality of Östhammar, shares her thoughts on the journey her community has taken within the Swedish geological disposal programme.
NDA Head of Stakeholder Relations John McNamara reflects on the recent 2-day summit, held in Anglesey, for individuals and organisations who are interested in our clean-up mission.
As the final instalment of Sky TV’s powerful Chernobyl drama came to an end, scientist Dr Claire Corkhill welcomes the interest it’s sparked in nuclear and says we need to talk more openly about the industry's global legacy.
Mark Wareing, the NDA’s Major Projects and Programmes Manager, has been involved with Sellafield’s legacy ponds and silos for the last 20 years. He acts as the link between Sellafield and the NDA to support the decommissioning mission and provide assurance to government and stakeholders that the NDA are making efficient and effective progress.
As NDA subsidiary International Nuclear Services (INS) launches its 10-year strategy for 2019 to 2029, Managing Director Seth Kybird blogs about what INS has achieved so far, and its plans for the future.
We have been reprocessing used nuclear fuel at Sellafield for decades, first in the First Generation Reprocessing Plant, then the Magnox Reprocessing Plant and, since the 1990s, in the Thermal Oxide Reprocessing Plant (Thorp). But what exactly is reprocessing?
NDA Inventory Manager, Martin James, outlines how international nuclear agencies are working together to report, for the first time, on global trends in how radioactive waste and spent fuels are managed.

Lucy Bailey is a chartered physicist working for Radioactive Waste Management, and it’s her job to show that a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) will not cause any harm to people or the environment. Geological disposal involves isolating and containing radioactive waste in sealed vaults and tunnels deep underground, between 200 m and 1000 m below the surface. This prevents radioactivity from ever reaching the surface in levels that could cause harm.
