Cigeo's facilities and operation

Cigeo's facilities and operation will be located in Meuse/Haute-Marne and will consist of an underground area (for waste disposal) and surface facilities spread over two areas, as well as links between the surface and the underground. Waste disposal will take place for over 100 years and the facility will be expanded as space is needed. It will then be closed to ensure the containment of waste over very long periods of time without the need for human action.
