Disposal of radioactive waste arising from reprocessing operations in "Mayak"

The European Commission, DG XI, has published an open call to tender for a study contract in the field of nuclear safety.

The study would assess the possibility of establishing near-surface and underground disposal sites in the southern Urals in which all waste products (low-, medium- and high-level wastes) generated by reprocessing operations at Chelyabinsk-65 ("Mayak") might be disposed of in a safe way.

This action is in line with the Council Resolution of 18 June 1992 on the technological problems of nuclear safety (OJ No C 172 of 8.7.1992, p. 2).

The study must be completed within 18 months from the date of signature of the contract.
