When nuclear materials are used for either industrial, medical or scientific processes, the byproduct is known as radioactive waste. For instance, the production of electricity, or the diagnosis and treatment of a disease through nuclear 

material will leave behind radioactive waste. The impact that this waste has on humans, living organisms, and the environment varies according to the type of radioactive waste and the manner in which it is handled and most importantly disposed off.


Nuclear material is either produced by nature or manmade.  Taking into account the serious nature of this waste, there are national and international regulatory controls on handling, oversight, and disposal of this waste. In the United States the Department of Energy (DOE), the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the Department of Transportation (DOT), and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) all have a role in the regulation of radioactive material. Internationally, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), the Nuclear Energy Agency (NEA), the European Commission (EC), and the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) - to name just a few - all contribute to the policies and regulation standards on radioactive material. 


There are numerous types of radioactive waste and, unfortunately, there has never been a permanent solution to the disposal of this waste. However, our company’s desire to aid in this process coupled with extensive research gave birth to a new and innovative technology that can reduce and concentrate all types of radioactive waste including High-Level Waste (HLW) by solids concentration factor ratio of at least 2,000:1.
