Low Level Waste (LLW) is radioactive waste or material that is contaminated by radioactivity through its use. Simple examples would include paper, plastic and protective clothing and when facilities cease operating may also include building rubble, soil and steel items such as pipework and storage vessels. Estimates of the volumes of LLW that will need to be managed between 2014 and 2029 have been generated using national inventory data for the nuclear industry. These estimate around 1.1 million m3
of LLW will need to be managed over this period, a proportion of which will be waste steel.
