Nuclear Environmental Protection
The nuclear environmental protection mechanism of the China National Nuclear Corporation (CNNC) covers a full range of spent fuel transport, a handling and fastening system, a transportation management system, a radiation protection system and an emergency response central system, as well as a complete technology, management and project organization and implementation system for nuclear facility decommissioning and radioactive waste treatment and disposal.
A technological process for power reactor spent fuel reprocessing has been completed.
Several Nuclear material transportation activities have been safely and effectively organized.
First-phase preparations are being carried out for a large-scale commercial reprocessing plant under the principle of "mainly relying on our own while pursuing China-foreign cooperation".
For radioactive waste treatment, key projects including a radioactive waste repository and radioactive source special treatments have been finished in 28 provinces or municipalities.
The Northwest Disposal Site has been constructed and is operational. Two national centralized radioactive source storage facilities have been successively constructed. The Feifeng Mountain Disposal Site is under construction and the Northwest Disposal Site under renovation.
