Focus on Radioactive Waste Decontamination

Veolia Nuclear Solutions reviews and evaluates contaminated and/or potentially contaminated equipment and components.  If the radioactive constituents can be removed by decontamination and released for unrestricted use, these items may be recoverable assets for your company.

Using our Asset Recovery Program, our clients will realize measurable savings through reuse of their recovered equipment. The equipment can be reused for its original intended purpose as non-radioactive items, eliminating disposal and replacement costs.

Items that we regularly decontaminate include:
  • Lead blankets and other lead components.
  • Electrical equipment, such as controllers, relays, printed circuit boards, displays, printers, computers.
  • Scaffold, heavy construction equipment (backhoes, tractors, etc.)
  • We release equipment for unrestricted use based upon the limits set forth in Reg. Guide 1.86. If requested, we can release equipment to lower levels or no detectable activity.
