Anarak nuclear waste disposal

Anarak is a nuclear waste disposal site. Iran told the IAEA in 2003 that Anarak stores waste resulting from experiments separating I-131 from irradiated UO2 targets.1 The IAEA requested that this waste be moved to a facility at Jabr Ibn Hayan Multipurpose Laboratories (JHL), and Iran transferred the waste in January 2004.2,3 Anarak nuclear waste disposal is a subsidiary of the Atomic Energy Organization of Iran (AEOI).4 

Congressional Research Service reporting indicates that there are reserves of uranium ore near Anarak.5
