Our Combustible Waste Treatment Service uses thermal treatment to reduce LLW disposal volumes.
This gives Customers the potential for greater cost efficiencies and results in less waste being disposed of at the LLWR Site.
Having the option to treat combustible waste gives our Customers greater flexibility in terms of how to manage LLW.
A wide variety of materials are suitable for thermal treatment and can reduce waste volumes disposed at the LLWR Site by up to 100%. The list of materials we can accept for thermal treatment is extensive, but most commonly includes: paper and cardboard, packaging materials, plastic sheeting, wood, oil, and protective clothing.
