Permanent responsibility for creating safe situations

Radioactive waste must be prevented from ending up in our living environment. In practical terms this means isolation, management and control of this waste. Because relatively little radioactive waste is produced in the Netherlands, and as it requires specialist knowledge, there is a single central facility for its collecting, processing and storage: COVRA.
