Glos & Oxon companies secure radioactive waste contracts

Magnox Ltd Berkeley

Companies from across the region have been awarded contracts to come up with innovative approaches to remotely sort and segregate radioactive waste.

The NDA’s Head of Innovation, Sara Huntingdon, said: “The reaction to ‘Sort and Seg’ has been incredible – we have received the best response we’ve ever had for this kind competition.

“It’s really exciting that most of the successful organisations are bringing in experience and ideas from other sectors and I’m really looking forward to working together with our partners and with all the winners to see how these ideas develop.”

The initial feasibility studies will be delivered in May, with the winners competing for a number of contracts – each worth up to £900,000 – for 15-month ‘demonstrator projects’.
