The every day operation of nuclear power plants involves the handling of different kinds of contaminated materials. Generated waste that does not get processed leads to high volumes of nuclear waste. Undocumented, mixed or unsorted wastes do not  get accepted at nuclear waste repositories. Simple separation of contaminated material does not suffice and generates large volumes of waste. As repository costs are influenced directly by the activity inventory and waste volume, high activity and volume result in high disposal costs.


Achieve efficient separation and volume reduction of radioactive waste with proven technologies from our extensive technology portfolio.
Liquid, solid and gaseous waste treatment as well as conditioning and legacy waste treatment are optimized with our specialized systems. We design, engineer and realize complete treatment facilities, according to customer needs. The waste treatment equipment logs data to provide all information needed for correct waste documentation and simplified repository acceptance. Unique decontamination and waste management processes and equipment decrease the level of contamination and can even result in free release (if applicable according to regulations).


Your Benefits

  • Reduces repository storage costs
  • Separates waste in the way best suited to reduce volume
  • Compacts waste for even more volume reduction
  • Reduces the amount of contaminated metal and machine parts by decontamination
  • Documents waste to ensure acceptance at the repository
