Electricite de France SA (EDF.FR) said Tuesday that its Cyclife subsidiary has signed an agreement with Italy's state-backed Societe Gestione Impianti Nucleari to treat metal waste produced during the decommissioning of nuclear power plants.

As part of the five-year deal, worth 28 million euros ($34.8 million), EDF will treat 1,800 tons of metal waste from the decommissioning of nuclear power plants in Trino, Garigliano and Latina, the company said.

Managing the metal waste will mean the sorting and encapsulation of waste on site, as well as the transportation and treatment of the waste at Cyclife's plant in Sweden, EDF said. Work on the contract is expected to begin in 2019, EDF added.
