Iran stored the waste resulting from the separation of Iodine-131 isotopes at the Tehran Nuclear Research Center (TNRC) from irradiated UO2 targets at a waste storage facility in Anarak. [1]

Iran mixed the waste in concrete and shipped it from Tehran to Anarak. IAEA inspectors visited the site in June 2003. [2] In response to an IAEA request, Iran shipped the waste from Anarak to Jabr Ibn Havan Multipurpose Laboratories at the TNRC in January 2004. [3]
