Understanding Nuclear Decommissioning

What happens when nuclear power stations close?

In France, EDF is expected to close 12 of its 56 operational nuclear reactors by 2035, after the 2 reactors at Fessenheim ceased operations in 2020, and is already dismantling 9 other shut-down reactors. In the UK, EDF shut down the 2 reactors at Dungeness B in June 2021, and 12 other reactors among its 13 remaining operational reactors are expected to close this decade with final shutdown of Hunterston B and Hinkley Point B planned by 2022. But what happens after a nuclear plant stops operating?
