COVRA

The Central Organisation for Radioactive Waste (COVRA) is the only body in the Netherlands with this task. All companies in the Netherlands with a licence based on the Nuclear Energy Act permitting them to work with radioactive substances must send their radioactive waste to COVRA.

In order to implement the management task for the radioactive waste, COVRA has created a storage and processing facility in Zeeland, on the East Vlissingen Port site in the municipality of Borssele. The total volume of radioactive waste that is expected to be generated in the coming hundred years can be stored with room to spare at the COVRA site, which covers around 20 hectares.

More information is available on COVRA’s website.
