Over the past week, colleagues from Urenco Nuclear Stewardship joined industry professionals at the Waste Management Symposium in Phoenix, Arizona. The conference, concerned with topics relating to the management of radioactive waste, provides the premier open forum for discussing and seeking safe, environmentally responsible, technically sound and cost effective solutions to the management and disposition of radioactive wastes and the decommissioning of nuclear facilities to enhance the transparency and credibility of the global radioactive waste industry.
Joining the 2000+ nuclear waste industry delegates from more than 30 countries was Senior Waste Engineer, Richard Kipling, and Waste Services Manager and RPA, Allan Wilson who were chosen to share learning and best practice in their presentations of projects completed by Urenco Nuclear Stewardship at the Capenhurst nuclear site during the conference.
“It was a pleasure to be back at the Waste Management Symposia this year,” said Dave Nelligan, Managing Director of Urenco Nuclear Stewardship. “Not only were we able to join the conversation with our experts' technical discussions on work carried out by Urenco Nuclear Stewardship on the Capenhurst site, but we stood alongside the UK supply chain in the conference's UK Pavilion.
“Responsible stewardship and the safe management of radioactive material is paramount in supporting the mission for new nuclear to support net zero goals. Urenco Nuclear Stewardship recognises the importance of careful management of nuclear legacies to provide the confidence in nuclear as an essential provider of energy.”
