Vinca reactor funding

5 June 2008

The European Commission has agreed to fund with $8.63 million an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA)-coordinated project to decommission Serbia’s ageing Vinca Institute research reactor.

Work will start with repackaging old Soviet nuclear fuel for repatriation to Russia for reprocessing. Then thousands of containers of unprocessed radioactive waste will be placed in new storage facilities.
