Creating a clean and safe environment for future generations

About Sellafield

Sellafield led the development of the UK’s nuclear industry from production of plutonium to the development of nuclear power generation.

Today it has the largest inventory of untreated nuclear waste in the world and is faced with the challenge of cleaning-up the legacy of the site’s early operations, including some of the most hazardous nuclear facilities in Europe.
