Disposability cases

Our experienced technical personnel have supported producers of radioactive waste in the successful development of disposability cases.

Our work has included disposability cases for higher activity radioactive wastes where eventual disposal to a UK geological disposal facility is the intended management strategy.

We have developed submission documentation at all stages of Radioactive Waste Management Ltd’s letter of compliance process, taking into account key waste form, package and site specific factors. This has included development of submissions for both encapsulated wastes using thin-walled containers and also for non-encapsulated wastes using thick-walled robust shielded containers.

Through this work, we have built excellent working relationships with Radioactive Waste Management Ltd, which led to one of our consultants providing disposability case assessment support at their Harwell offices.
