What is a GDF?

There is international consensus that the safest permanent solution to manage higher activity radioactive waste is geological disposal, which involves putting the waste in a Geological Disposal Facility (GDF) beneath several hundred metres of solid rock.

The benefits of a GDF

Having a GDF in the UK will create jobs and guaranteed investment for the host community.

How we work together

The process of finding a site for a GDF is consent-based; communities will be able to work in partnership with us, so that people will have the opportunity to create a future that works for them.
