Our Metallic Waste Treatment Service provides opportunities for our Customers to recycle metallic waste whilst reducing the volumes of LLW disposed at the LLWR Site.

This is better for the environment, a more efficient use of resources, and gives Customers greater flexibility in how to manage low level radioactive waste.

We can use a range of techniques such as size reduction, shot-blasting, and melting to treat the metallic waste. Secondary waste arising from the process, such as shot blast media or slag from metal melting, will then be further treated or disposed of via the most appropriate route.

We have successfully treated; Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Aluminium, Brass, Copper and Lead as well as other less common metals.  In general we achieve up to 98% volume reduction of the original waste consigned.
