Three uranium tailings in Kyrgyzstan will be subject to reclamation, liquidation and conservation. This is reported by the company RosRAO.

According to it, on August 22, RosRAO State Enterprise (“Rosatom” State Corporation) was selected as the winner in a tender for work at three tailing sites in Kyrgyzstan: Tuyuk-Suu (liquidation), Dalneye (conservation) and Kaji-Sai (recultivation).
