Storage of Plutonium

Background

We are interested in improving our understanding of the long-term storage of plutonium. This includes the behaviour of the plutonium, the storage package and the store.

We are also interested in how the operation of our stores (package movement or inspection and store monitoring) could be improved, particularly through the implementation of remotely operated technologies and techniques (robotics). This work is done in close collaboration with Sellafield Ltd.
