Our key figures
Cyclife France is a French limited liability company (Société Anonyme), and a wholly owned subsidiary of the EDF group via its attachment to the holding company Cyclife since July 2017.

Cyclife is focused on combining technical and economic performance with sustainable improvements in nuclear safety, industrial safety, radiation protection and environmental management. Via its activities at the Centraco site and producer's sites, Cyclife France subjects radioactive waste and materials to volume reduction and conditioning processes in order to limit the space occupied at Andra's storage facilities. Where possible, some waste is recovered for re-use.
CDB (Conditionnement Déchets Béton) is a subsidiary of Cyclife France specialised in the manufacture of concrete containers for conditioning of waste.
