Low-Level Radioactive Waste Management

We are a proven partner to the nuclear industry, thanks to our long history of service, compliance and innovative solutions.

The challenge as we see it

Disposing of radioactive waste can be a costly and time-consuming effort if not managed properly. In addition to logistical considerations, meeting compliance requirements of state and federal regulations can be a daunting task. The first step toward bringing a program into compliance is identifying all types of radioactive waste. While some examples are obvious, such as contaminated rags and gloves, a full audit should be performed to verify and account for all streams.
