The safe storage of plutonium programme consists of the facilities and activities that produce plutonium dioxide and all of the associated facilities. It also includes those facilities and activities that are and will be required to treat and/or repackage plutonium product and residues to facilitate the safe ongoing storage of the stock of civil plutonium at Sellafield.
We are safely storing over 100 tonnes of material at Sellafield.
The Sellafield Product and Residue Store (SPRS) is now operational and will remain so for the duration of this reporting period. Work on the SPRS retreatment construction project will be complete during the 2023/24 financial year.
