Environment

Environmental protection and care are strategic targets of Enresa and form part of its raison d'être. To that end, in addition to strict legal compliance, a preventative approach and suitable environmental commitment, the company strives to push through initiatives geared to reducing its emissions and driving circularity as a strategy to combat climate change.

Carbon footprint

Enresa is working towards decarbonisation. To achieve that, it calculates the carbon footprint stemming from its activities to ascertain its performance on greenhouse gas emissions, and implements initiatives to foster better environmental performance and in the fight against climate change.

Circular economy

Enresa has defined its Circular Economy Plan 2023-2026, focused on responsible resource management to strengthen its commitment to best corporate practices and, above all, caring for the planet.

With a view to attaining the targets defined, the Plan is structured in six lines of work:

1. Radioactive waste Identify and treat radioactive waste for its potential recovery and reuse.
2. Decommissioning Contribute to the reuse and extension of the useful life of products.
3. Management of solid urban and similar waste
Increase the separation of waste at source to foster its recycling and provide it with a second life.Eliminate single-use plastics and replace plastics with less contaminating products.
4. Atmosphere (energy and transport) Contribute to reducing CO2 emissions into the atmosphere.
5. Water, reducing negative effects Prevent negative effects from water, both quantitative and qualitative.
6. Sustainable procurement Boost responsible public procurement

Commitment to biodiversity

Enresa is working to prevent, conserve, restore and improve the natural environment around its facilities.

Environmental management systemss

The company’s activities in this area are concentrated at the El Cabril Disposal Centre, specifically in the Albarrana Mountains (Cordoba). The Centre has a surface area of 1,126 hectares, of which just 35 are allocated to the treatment and storage of radioactive waste.

Since its operations began at this Centre, Enresa has maintained prevention, conservation, restoration and improvement commitments to the natural surroundings of the Centre, focusing its actions on four areas:

Earth icon Improving habitats

Another milestone is the development of the El Cabril Hydrological Surveillance Programme, which seeks to verify the correct functioning of the Centre from a hydrological perspective.

Environmental management systems guarantee the implementation of tasks within the safety and reliability margins for the environment required by legislation and best practices, both now and in the future.

Environmental monitoring and environmental radiological monitoring

Enresa, in line with its aim to continuously improve its management model, set up the company’s Environmental Management Committee at the end of 2022, and approved a Corporate Environmental Policy, commencing the process for the implementation of a common environmental management system.

To date, Enresa has implemented environmental management systems at the following facilities:

El Cabril

El Cabril Disposal Centre has a surface area of 1,126 hectares, of which just a small part is assigned to the storage of radioactive waste.

AENOR ISO 14001 Certificate

The basic document that describes the guidelines and main objectives to be complied with by the Environmental Management System at the Centre is the El Cabril Environmental Policy.

Vandellós

The Vandellós I NPP, located on the coast of Tarragona, has implemented an Environmental Management System. One of its main aims is continuous improvement, to which end work is being done on efficiency in the consumption of goods and in reducing waste production.

AENOR ISO 14001 certificate

The basic document that describes the guidelines and main objectives to be complied with by the Environmental Management System at the NPP is the Plant Environmental Policy.

Enresa undertakes Environmental Monitoring Programmes (EMP) with the aim of verifying that the impact of its activities on the environment falls within the limits established by law, along with Environmental Radiological Monitoring Programmes (ERMP), through which it verifies that its activities do not alter the level of natural radiation of the sites.

The results of these programmes are periodically submitted to the Nuclear Safety Council (CSN) and the Ministry for Ecological Transition and Demographic Challenge (MITECO).

Environmental Monitoring Programmes (EMP)

Each year, hundreds of environmental samples are taken, which are then submitted for analysis to test the quality of the air, discharges, underground and surface water, the level of noise pollution/sound impact, etc. Centres where EMPs are implemented.

Environmental Radiological Monitoring Programmes (ERMP)

Control points are established and samples are taken of water, air, vegetation and food, which are submitted to the analysis of both natural and artificial radioactive isotopes to evaluate the radiological repercussions of each activity. By means of these programmes, close to 7,000 analyses are made each year of more than 5,500 samples taken. Centres where ERMPs are implemented.
