Introduction of waste treatment for LLW

Where wastes cannot be prevented from arising, the UK strategy is aimed at minimising the volume and activity of LLW consigned for disposal through waste segregation, decontamination or decay storage. A variety of strategies are encompassed in recycling; including waste volume reduction and compaction and thermal treatment. Reuse and recycling of rubble and
metal wastes provide a further means to reduce LLW wastes. Metallic drum wastes from the LLWR are currently being shipped to the Studsvik facility at Lillyhall, Cumbria for processing to remove the radioactivity to minimise the quantities of metals disposed in the LLWR. Suitable LLW is also super­compacted under high pressure before disposal at the LLWR to minimise the volume prior to disposal.
