The CEA-ILL’s Local Information Commission newsletter recently published an announcement that LAMA (the active materials testing lab) had been removed from the French government’s list of nuclear sites following a government decree issued on October 13, 2017. The lab, located behind H1, was in operation from 1961 to 2002. It was used to study the behavior of materials (from laboratory and power-plant reactors) exposed to radiation. Work to dismantle and decommission the lab was completed in 2015. The building currently houses support staff .

Final paperwork for the decommissioning of the effluent and waste treatment plant is in progress and will soon close the nuclear chapter in the history of the CEA’s Grenoble campus.
