1.1 Definition and scope of the study

The nuclear decommissioning refers to the total shutdown of nuclear operations, the demolition of buildings, the implementation of radiation protection measures for workers and site personnel, and the containment, conditioning and disposal of radioactive or hazardous waste. The nuclear decommissioning market is growing rapidly and is a industrial activity in its own right.

France is one of the world leaders in the market with a dismantling activity that concerns both military nuclear facilities s, the electricity-generating reactors, but also the research laboratories

Thus, in 2021, there will be almost 193 shutdown nuclear reactors (energy producers) in the world, most of which have not yet been dismantled States have gradually become aware of the scale of the task of dismantling the many obsolete nuclear power plants around the world Europe is the largest market in the world, with an estimated size of €95 billion over the period 2020 - 2050 . In Europe, France is the leading market, with 59 nuclear reactors to be shut down and dismantled by 2050.  

In France, the main nuclear power plant operators ( EDF, Orano, CEA ) are also responsible for their dismantling. Some operations are subcontracted to different players such as certain construction groups ( Vinci , Bouygues ) or environmental services ( Veolia ). French players are also seeking to export their know-how to win international tenders.

The life of a nuclear facility can vary from 30 to 50 years. The  CEA  (Commissariat à l'énergie atomique et aux énergies alternatives) in France has a budget of several hundred million euros earmarked for the dismantling and treatment of radioactive waste. However, many  barriers to entry  exist as nuclear decommissioning is a complex activity requiring state-of-the-art techniques and impeccable organisation.

In recent years, the authorities concerned have been trying to improve their understanding of the decommissioning cost the cost of each installation and the lack of clarity about the costs of each installation result in a very high price.
