The 1st Integrated Waste Management Conference

With some 40 different discussion topics, the Nuclear Institute Integrated Waste Management Conference programme is the biggest ever of its kind in the UK and consists of two presentation streams, and one workshop stream held in parallel over two days.  It will cover the full lifecycle of radioactive waste, waste routes and consignor activities with a particular focus on waste management integration and optimisation.

As the content of the conference will be technical in nature and is aimed at focussing on sharing good practice and experience across each step of the lifecycle, the event is expected to attract several hundred delegates from across the UK and beyond – those who are involved in integrated radioactive waste management (practitioners, regulators, consignors or disposers). As a delegate you will hear about the NDA strategy for integrated waste management and national inventory improvements, learn how more effective waste management is being achieved through enhanced characterisation techniques, see what has been done to treat and condition different waste products, hear about advances in packaging technology, understand how robotics are used, gain an insight into post-Brexit Waste Management strategy, plus much more.

The conference will provide a platform from which to headline the national position on radioactive waste management and cover topics including:

  • Strategy, Regulations & Policy
  • Waste Characterisation
  • Retrievals
  • Treatment & Conditioning
  • Packaging
  • Transport
  • Storage & Disposal

Conference Plenary Keynote speakers

  • International principles of Waste Management - Dennis Thompson, Managing Director, Low Level Waste Repository Ltd
  • Ensuring the safe and efficient management of the UK’s nuclear legacy -  Dr Adrian Simper OBE, Strategy Director, Nuclear Decommissioning Authority
