The La Hague site is a nuclear fuel reprocessing plant of AREVA on the French Cotentin Peninsula that currently has nearly half of the world's light water reactor spent nuclear fuel reprocessing capacity. It has a capacity of about 1700 tons per year.  The La Hague site treats spent nuclear fuel from France, Japan, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Italy and the Netherlands. It processed 1100 tons in 2008. The non-renewable waste is eventually sent back to the user nation, as established under international law. Recovered plutonium from spent fuel of French reactors is sent to Marcoule where MOX fuel (a mixture of uranium and plutonium) is fabricated.
