GSL is leading two work packages (WP2 and WP5) within the EURATOM Collaborative Project “Thermal treatment for radioactive waste minimisation and hazard reduction (THERAMIN)”, which has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Euratom research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 755480.
A summer school, hosted by the CEA at Marcoule in June 2019, was attended by 22 participants (largely early career researchers and PhD students from the project Partners and End Users). Presentations were given on the toolbox of treatment and characterisation approaches demonstrated in the project and participants had the opportunity to visit industrial and prototype thermal treatment facilities operated by CEA and Cyclife-EDF.
Steve Wickham (WP2 Lead) gave a presentation on the strategic impact of thermal treatment and Jenny Kent (WP5 Lead) ran a workshop on optioneering and Value Assessment. The summer school was well received by attendees and presentations will be added to the website shortly, together with a summary of the project objectives and the published deliverables: http://www.theramin-h2020.eu/downloads.htm
