Radioactive waste is currently stored at the reactor sites. A centralised interim storage facility at Villar de Cañas will start operation in 2016.
Low- and intermediate-level waste has been disposed of in the El Cabril surface repository since 1992. A facility for very low-level waste has been in operation at the same site since 2008.
Generic (i.e. non-site-specific) safety reports have been prepared on geological repositories for high-level waste in granite and clay. The priority, however, is to first construct the centralised interim storage facility.
