Tetronics Supports Sellafield with Nuclear Decommissioning Research – Potentially Delivering Significant Economic Benefit to the UK
Tetronics has been commissioned to run trials for Sellafield Ltd using its plasma technology to convert a simulated Intermediate Level Waste (ILW) into a stabilised form with a considerable level of volume reduction.
London, March 22th, 2011 – Tetronics Ltd., a global leader in the supply of Direct Current (DC) plasma waste recovery plants for the treatment of hazardous waste and metal recovery, today announced that it has been commissioned by Sellafield Ltd to run trials on a range of simulated intermediate level metallic solid wastes including, containers, plant equipment and structural materials that mimic the behaviour of material that has been irradiated or contaminated during its operational life on the Sellafield site. The purpose of this trial is to confirm the viability of plasma technology in the immobilisation of high metallic solid wastes.
