Decommissioning & Dismantling (D&D) & Waste
CEA

CEA (French alternative energies and atomic energy commission). We work on a very regular basis for the CEA, following our own radiochemical protocols to measure values in soil and concrete samples, with a view to ensuring that the cleaning-up operations on their various sites proceed smoothly.

Key aspecta contact person appointed for each contract, who keeps the client up to date with the progress made with the measurements.

EDF

- EDF CIDEN is an engineering division of EDF that specialises in the D&D of nuclear power plants. It chose Eurofins Eichrom to be its partner laboratory with responsibility for measuring radioactivity levels in complex D&D samples (metals, concrete, etc.) with a view to determining the appropriate waste disposal route.

Key aspectthe simplicity of Eurofins Eichrom's sample management system streamlines the production and delivery of test reports; particularly beneficial when the contract stipulates short turn-around times.

ONET

- Radiological inventory and waste characterisation (metal, plastics, vinyl, paper…).
- Cleaning up sites: radiological and chemical measurements (test for potential pollutants) to determine an appropriate waste recovery or disposal route.

Key aspectconducting acceptance tests on waste to authorise their storage on ANDRA's sites.

Environment

- Determination of the "zero-point" for the site selected for the construction of an international project. The zero-point is the initial condition of the environmental impact assessment that necessitates radiological measurements of very low levels of contamination in soils, vegetation, water, etc.

Key aspect: Investigation of very low levels of radioactivity in soils, water, vegetation, etc.

Andra

Environmental and daily monitoring of the Manche radioactive waste storage site (in France)

Key aspect: The handling of large numbers of samples every day, and the fast delivery of results.

Akkuyu

- working in partnership with a Turkish design office, performing a 4-season analysis of very low level radioactivity to determine the zero-point for the planned Akkuyu Turkish nuclear power plant.


Key aspect: Internationally-recognised expertise combined with COFRAC-accredited analyses.
