Protection of the environment

Protecting the environment is a Cesta priority. Since the project's inception, the center provides the French authorities with a set of information intended to ensure, in a completely transparent manner, the protection of human health and the environment. To this end, an independent laboratory regularly conducts chemical and physical and chemical analyses on and around the site. In addition, the site monitors water quality in real time.


Like any physics research laboratory, the Megajoule Laser will use minute amounts of radioactive materials for some experiments.

Cesta publishes information on all matters relating to the protection of health and the environment in environmental newsletters, which are posted in the town halls of the municipalities located around the site.


These newsletters (in French only) can be downloaded by clicking the links below.
