Summary

Characterization and survey prior to dismantling. Technologies for segmentation and dismantling. Decontamination and remediation. Materials and wast management. Site characterization and environmental monitoring.

Content

The use of imaging and remote sampling systems is discussed, as well as novel detection and sample analysis technologies. Experience with robotics, remote systems and innovative cutting technologies are presented. A wide array of subjects including understanding of chemical and physical processes being used for decontamination. Addressing of challenges and technologies and fundamental research to better understand interactions between waste, packaging and disposal environs. Site characterization towards end state, post decommissioning challenges and technologies. Exploring the obstacles that must be overcome bring innovative solutions and technologies to bear on nuclear decommissioning. Reference is made to the challenges of getting new technologies into the field of decommissioning projects. A survey of decommissioning costing and human resources needs of skills and mind-setting is given.
