EWN operates a number of disposal facilities and an interim storage facility at the Greifswald/Lubmin site.

Kerntechnische Entsorgung Karlsruhe GmbH (abbreviated as KTE) bundles all dismantling activities regarding the decommissioned nuclear research and prototype plants and the necessary disposal activities at the Karlsruhe/KIT Campus North (Baden-Württemberg) site. The Karlsruhe reprocessing plant (WAK) including the Karlsruhe vitrification plant, the compact sodium-cooled nuclear reactor facility (KNK), the multi-purpose research reactor (MZFR), the FR 2 research reactor, the hot cells (decommissioned construction stages) and the superfluous evaporation and cementing facilities for radioactive waste water are currently being dismantled.
