Expert voices - Recycling: a strategic asset for the nuclear industry
Thanks to Orano’s unique technologies, 96% of used nuclear fuel is recycled. For more than 50 years, at its La Hague and Melox plants, the group has been processing recoverable materials and fabricating new MOX fuels. In France, 10% of nuclear-generated electricity comes from recycled materials. A virtuous circle which makes it possible to reduce the volume of the most radioactive types of waste by a factor of 5. Explanations with Jean-Michel Romary, Director of Nuclear Waste Management at Orano, alongside Stéphanie Kerbarh, Deputy for Seine Maritime and rapporteur for the Fench law on the circular economy.
