Geological disposal is one of the UK’s largest ever environmental protection projects, which will provide a safe and secure long-term solution for the disposal of higher activity radioactive waste.
We have now started the process to find a site for a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) for radioactive waste in the UK.
In support of the Government’s policy announcement, RWM has published information for communities including:
- Introduction to Geological Disposal - An overview into our mission to deal with radioactive waste
- Community Guidance - How we will work with communities
National Geological Screening for a GDF. This provides a high level summary of the geological information which is relevant to the safety of a GDF.
In addition, we have also launched a consultation on how we will evaluate sites in England:
Communities will be right at the heart of the siting process for a GDF and a facility will be built where both a suitable site AND a willing community are selected.
If you want to learn more about GDF and the role of communities in the siting process, please get in touch by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our team will get back to you.
