Future decommissioning projects will yield a combined total of 2.17M. m 3 of irradiated material - enough to fill the new Wembley Stadium twice over. This breaks down into:
. 216m 3 of high level waste - material giving off heat . 134,000m 3 of intermediate level waste, for which there is no national storage or disposal strategy at present.
. 2.03bn. m 3 of low level waste, much of which will be taken to Nirex's repository at Drigg, Cumbria, or to Dounreay, Caithness, for long term storage.
