Durable reinforced concrete containers

Since its creation in 2000, CDB has been manufacturing reinforced concrete containers for the conditioning of low and medium level radioactive waste.

These containers are used by EDF and the French Atomic Energy and New Energies Commission (CEA).

These containers have undergone a 300-year durability demonstration, enabling them to be approved by theAgence National pour la Gestion des Déchets RAdioactifs (Andra), the French national agency for radioactive waste management, as a consequence of the support of our customers in :

  • The development of high-performance concrete formulations

  • The definition of appropriated container geometry

  • The definition and the mastery of the industrial manufacturing process

  • The implementation of controls throughout the manufacturing process
