Radioactive Waste Assessment and Disposal

Aurora will assess and then dispose of your radioactive waste responsibly through an appropriate waste route; at approved landfills, the low-level waste repository (LLWR), incinerators, and recycling plants, ensuring the most cost-effective service.

The disposal of radioactive waste can be a time consuming and expensive process. With Aurora’s in-depth knowledge and experience of radioactive waste disposal, together with an extensive network of waste disposal contacts, Aurora are able to assess, stream, transport, and ultimately dispose of all types of your radioactive waste.

Such waste disposal can range from a few small sources previously used for classroom teaching through to the disposal of thousands of tonnes of radioactively contaminated soil and rubble.

“I am very grateful to Aurora for their professional support and advice. Their team advised us on all radiological aspects of this project. Before the project started they conducted a radiological survey, prepared risk assessments and method statements and supported our contractors by providing training and guidance on regulatory requirements. The subsequent engineering works were carried out safely and successfully, with no significant contamination events. The work was completed on time and the impact on surrounding areas was minimised. Aurora also assisted with sentencing and disposal of radioactive waste from the project. Well done!”

Radioactive Waste Advisers (RWAs)

Our Radioactive Waste Advisers can assist you in assessment of radioactive waste to determine the appropriate category and waste route.

Assessment can be carried out in-situ using the portable High Resolution Gamma Spectroscopy system, surface sampling with analysis by Liquid Scintillation Analysis or by core sampling for off-site laboratory analysis.

We can arrange for disposal to a suitable facility such as a specialist landfill or incinerator.
A Radioactive Waste Adviser will assist with your permit application and check compliance if this is required.
