The Novovoronezhskaya nuclear power station is investing $14.2m in a new facility to recycle solid radioactive wastes with the capacity of between 1.4 and 1.8 tons a year, the company said today.

The complex will include a Pluton plasmatic unit which converts waste into glass-like bricks containing 90% of radioactive elements. The recycled wastes will be placed in containers.

The complex is to be commissioned in 2012.
