Galson Sciences Ltd - Waste disposal studies
For British Nuclear Group, we have conducted preliminary assessments of disposal options for decommissioning wastes with very low levels of activity.
For the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) Dounreay, we have performed a wide range of assignments for UKAEA as part of a five-year (Best Practicable Environmental Option) assessment contract including a risk assessment for low-level waste (LLW) disposal, storage and transport. We are also developing the safety case for submission to regulators for authorisation for new LLW disposal facilities to take wastes from decommissioning of the Dounreay site.
For the Environment Agency, we acted as principal contractor for regulatory review of British Nuclear Fuels (BNFL)'s safety case for continued disposal at the LLW repository near Drigg, including conduct of a probabilistic risk assessment.
For SNIFFER (Scottish and Northern Ireland Forum for Environmental Research), we developed a methodology for determining the radiological capacity of controlled landfill sites to take solid LLW, and a methodology for acceptance of dustbin disposals of radioactivity.
