In response to the lockdown in March Sellafield Ltd safely paused a number of operations on the Sellafield site, including the controlled shutdown of the Magnox Reprocessing Plant.
Since then the company have been working closely with government, Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA), regulators and other stakeholders to understand the impacts on plans for the completion of Magnox reprocessing.
A spokesperson from Sellafield Ltd said:
"Having carefully reviewed the situation with the NDA, we are now in a position to fully resume the Magnox reprocessing programme and reprocess the remaining Magnox spent fuel on the Sellafield site.
"This remains the safest and most environmentally responsible way of managing this material.
