Nuclear Decommissioning Agency Mission Progress Report 2021

5th November 2021

Photograph of Nuclear Decommissioning Agency Mission Progress Report 2021

This is the latest iteration of the Mission Progress Report (MPR) which focuses on the key themes that form the milestones by which we will deliver our mission across our nuclear sites.

In this report, our progress and goals have been aligned with those in our latest Strategy, published in March 2021, allowing for a more consistent approach to presenting our decommissioning mission.

"We are always looking at a changing picture as the uncertainty surrounding our inventory reduces and we further develop our strategy. It is however, becoming increasingly accurate as we share learning across the group and work closer together on numerous projects."

Ground-breaking research published in Nature Communications shows that traces of plutonium in the environment can be identified as being from global or local sources.   Using soil samples taken from Dounreay, an area near to the site and 2 areas at a distance from the site, the research showed that it was possible to identify whether minute traces of plutonium in the soil came from plutonium ‘bred' in a reactor or from global fallout.
