Belgoprocess treats radioactive waste originating from nuclear power plants, hospitals, laboratories and industry. The objective for waste treatment and conditioning is the transformation of radioactive waste into a stable end product, ready for intermediate storage and/or final disposal. Doing so, it is important to minimise the volume and immobilise the radioactivity of the waste.
In order to choose the adequate treatment, the waste is classified in several categories, all related to a specific treatment and conditioning process. For each category, Belgoprocess has the appropriate installations and technologies.
