Detail

This work supports the Environment Agency’s Nuclear Waste Assessment Team. The objectives of the study were:

  • to assess the reasons why reworking of drummed or packaged Intermediate Level Waste (ILW) might be required;
  • to identify different reworking methods and their feasibility;
  • to assess the potential strategies for reworking and their implications.
