NPL provides a wide range of traceable measurement techniques to support nuclear decommissioning. Understanding the status of the waste involves accurately measuring the radioactivity as well as monitoring the long-term monitoring of the storage containers and any degradation. Our services include:
Nuclear measurement - regularly and accurately measuring the ionising radiation of nuclear waste.
Corrosion measurements - ensuring that the containment is fit for purpose using NDT and corrosion data.
Moisture content - monitoring the moisture of the waste to understand the environment and ensure the waste is safe.
