Eden Nuclear and Environment lead the Encapsulation Coordination Group
Eden Nuclear and Environment Ltd are currently leading work for the NDA as a cross-industry initiative aimed to develop technical solutions for future supplies of the cement powders typically used to stabilise many kinds of low and intermediate level radioactive wastes. The work initially was centred on performing a two-phased desk-based review, to analyse current issues and subsequently outline options for managing any risks identified. Development of new technologies was also covered. The principal benefits of this work are focussed on improvement of understanding of issues, and identification of options that could be developed. The two work phases have now been complete, and third phase of work is in progress to establish and run a co-ordination group to provide technical advice and take forward identified options; the Encapsulation Coordination Group.
