COVRA carries out Dutch policy on nuclear waste. Our mission is to provide continuous care for radioactive waste in the Netherlands. With ‘continuous’ we mean up to the moment that the radioactive material has completely decayed and a safe, stable situation is created. The mission is executed as a service to society. COVRA is a not for profit organisation. Executing this mission means:

  • collecting, processing and storing all types of radioactive waste;
  • reserving and managing the financial means for long-term above ground storage;
  • coordinating research on final storage;
  • preparing final storage, including reserving and managing the financial means for execution;
  • serving as a knowledge centre for government, industry and society, including educational aspects; and
  • actively participating in various international settings in the field of radioactive waste management.
