NDA publishes new guidance on waste management

The NDA (Nuclear Decommissioning Authority) has published new guidance on waste management.

The aim of the updated guidance strategy is to promote a more transparent description of how waste is managed, to secure improvements in treatment and disposal routes, and to encourage more effective ways of working.

The NDA specifies that, “Waste covers a wide range of material including building rubble and hazardous substances such as oil or asbestos. Decommissioning sites generate waste containing varying levels of radioactivity, which is an important consideration for developing a waste strategy.

“Only a tiny fraction will be highly radioactive, but all of it must be appropriately sorted, processed, treated, packaged, stored and eventually sent for disposal.”
