    Waste recovery for nuclear wastes

    Nuclear waste is divided into low, medium, and high‐level waste by the amount of radiological character it contains. Low and Intermediate Level Nuclear waste is the radioactive waste resulting from nuclear facility consumables, clothing, laboratory equipment etc. This waste can adversely affect human health and the environment and therefore must be handled appropriately. Typically, the waste is kept underwater for 3-5 years until the radiation decays to levels that can be shielded by concrete in large storage casks, where it can be held for thousands of years. A challenge for the nuclear industry is the cost associated with conditioning, packaging and storage of these heterogeneous wastes. Therefore, a solution that can decrease the volume of nuclear waste, and reduce the amount of storage required, is considered a commercially advantageous option.

    NORM Waste

    Natural Occurring Radioactive Material consists of materials enriched with radioactive elements found in the environment. They are usually brought to the surface by oil and gas exploration or mining. NORM wastes can be treated in a VacuDry® unit in order to prepare it for a safe sub earth disposal.

    Industrial Solution for incineration & thermal treatment

    Waste incineration, including solid municipal and hazardous waste, biomedical waste and hazardous liquid are all continually under more stringent scrutiny by regulators. Macrotek has designed and supplied many integrated systems to meet most guidelines. In several installations, hazardous waste has been combined with radioactive waste, requiring nearly non-detectable emission levels for many of the contaminants. Macrotek has installed and tested systems for these processes with the results significantly better than required standards.

    Radiation Monitoring for Medicine and Research laboratories

    Medicine and Research laboratories The medical industry uses radioactivity to explore and heal the human body. In pharmaceutical laboratories, nuclear medicine practitioners and patients alike are exposed to ionizing radiation to various extents. These internal and external doses, generated by radiotherapy, scintigraphy and sealed or unsealed sources, require special precautions. Saphymo designs and manufactures various dose monitoring solutions, ranging from individual radiation protection to process and waste control. Research labs using accelerators or reactors can also rely on Saphymo’s ability to meet safety requirements by providing highly technical, custom-made devices suitable for monitoring both very low and very high activity. The Saphymo product ranges, from Radiation Monitoring Systems developed from A-Z by Saphymo to Survey meters and dosimetry, meet medical and research requirements to the full.
