INSIDER partner SCK CEN developed a 3D model to considerably reduce the footprint of decommissioning

New approach streamlines decommissioning process thanks to 3D model mapping radioactivity more accurately The nuclear research centre SCK CEN, an INSIDER consortium member, has developed a 3D model to considerably reduce the footprint of decommissioning. With this new approach, used concrete from a nuclear plant can be given a second life in the construction sector, more often than has previously been

The CHANCE project organizes a webinar series on the characterization of radioactive waste

The EU-funded project CHANCE (Characterization of conditioned radioactive waste) organizes a webinar series on characterization. Two webinars are planned at this stage: The first CHANCE webinar is planned on June 18th afternoon. The topic of this webinar is the Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy: Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy (CRDS) as an innovative technique to characterize outgassing of radioactive waste. During this webinar, a

Second on-site benchmarking exercises completed

The INSIDER project is developing a validation method of the radiological characterisation for the nuclear installations under decommissioning and dismantling (D&D) process. The in-situ benchmarking exercises are a fundamental part of this objective, and the first round was completed in 2018. Within the frame of INSIDER and in the autumn 2019, the second on-site benchmarking exercise was carried out at the JRC

INSIDER presented at the NKS-B RADWORKSHOP 2018

From 8-12 October, the NKS-B RADWORKSHOP 2018 took place in Roskilde (Denmark). During this 3-day event, Danièle Roudil gave a detailed presentation of INSIDER, a Horizon 2020 project that she is coordinating. Launched in June 2017, INSIDER aims to optimise radioactive waste identification during nuclear decommissioning and dismantling operations (D&D), in particular concerning nuclear power plants, post-accidental sites or nuclear
