Nuclear Engineering Seibersdorf GmbH (NES) is Austria’s central organization for the management of radioactive waste (RAW). It manages all RAW generated in Austria, especially waste from medicine, industry, research, decommissioning of nuclear (research) facilities, waste from historical applications (like Ra-226 bearing waste) and legacy waste. NES has complete infrastructure for collecting, sorting, treatment, conditioning and interim storage of low- and intermediate level waste LILW (no high-level waste or spent nuclear fuel). All buildings and equipment were modernized or completely new built in the period 2008-2020 and therefore represent the latest state of the art in treatment of LILW. The NES Waste Management Plant is available for technical visits.
