OUR NUCLEANTECH® SOLUTIONS RANGE IS ESPECIALLY DESIGNED FOR TREATING LOW AND INTERMEDIATE LEVEL RADIATION SOLID AND LIQUID WASTE PRODUCED IN DIFFERENT STAGES OF THE NUCLEAR ENERGY PRODUCTION PROCESS.
NUCLEANTECH® INCLUDES THE FOLLOWING SOLUTIONS:
Treatment of laundry and sanitary waste waters which can be contaminated with low activity particles. This method enables efficient separation and optimizes final treatment, as it reduces the waste volume and thereby the disposal cost.
The treatment of waste water generated during the production of UF6 for uranium enrichment. Effluents are treated using evaporation to separate the cleaning water from a concentrate containing salts, mainly CaF2 and traces of uranium oxide. These salts can be crystallized and prepared as waste. This solution enables a reduction in waste volume, hence reducing treatment cost.
Treatment of boron waste water used in the primary refrigerant of PWR nuclear plants. The nuclear-grade boric acid is recovered by highly efficient vacuum evaporation, while the generated liquid waste is also reduced, thereby reducing the treatment cost of this radioactive waste.
Treatment and minimization of solid waste with low level radioactivity generated in industries of the nuclear sector by means of pyrolysis.
Our solution involves resins from the secondary circuit and operational treatments, decreasing treatment costs and waste volume.
A revolutionary solution that makes it possible to separate tritiated water from conventional water with high effectiveness.
This is the first solution offering satisfactory results for the treatment of the tritium present in radioactive effluents from PWR reactors.
A pioneering process to treat the complex radioactive effluents generated at nuclear power plants.
The process is posited on leveraging inorganic solid adsorbents and enables different effluent isotopes, including tritium, to be separated.
