Taking back reprocessed waste

Federal Minister Barbara Hendricks presented a general concept for taking back radioactive waste from reprocessing plants in France and England. According to the concept, the 26 castor casks are to be distributed evenly across Germany to four interim storage sites. The purpose of this overall concept is to initiate the return of vitrified radioactive waste from reprocessing in France and the United Kingdom within an appropriate time frame to power supply companies (EVU) in line with their obligations.
