The Central Organisation For Radioactive Waste [COVRA] is the sole company in the Netherlands tasked with collecting, processing and storing all radioactive waste. COVRA’s premises holds dedicated storage facilities at the surface at which High Level Waste packages and Low and Intermediate Level waste packages are stored. These storage facilities are visited by people with a basic training but also students as part of their academic training. The facility that processes waste can also be visited but is more cumbersome and usually not done to save time. To monitor the quality of the waste forms and conditioning concrete, COVRA possesses laboratory equipment such as ICP-OES for chemical analysis and pressure banks to monitor the mechanical strength of fabricated cementitious materials.
