Hundreds of nuclear industry experts gathered in Cumbria for a two-day focus on managing radioactive waste.
The NDA joined forces with the Nuclear Institute for one of the most anticipated events in the industry’s calendar. The Integrated Waste Management Conference 2019 welcomed industry leaders and experts from across the globe at the largest event of its kind in Europe.
More than 250 delegates attended the two-day gathering – held in Penrith, Cumbria, earlier this week – to learn more about progress and opportunities from integrated waste management with talks, workshops, exhibitions and panel sessions.
A packed programme of speakers included Government officials, regulators, supply chain companies, consultants and waste management experts from across the NDA group.
The NDA’s Director of Integrated Waste Management, Corhyn Parr, said: “This was a rare and valuable opportunity to share learning, discuss issues and progress and to debate the opportunities around integrated waste management.
“Having leading experts from industry and academia together in one place is an important aspect in driving forward the topic of radioactive waste – which is a vital part of the NDA’s mission.”
Earlier this year, the NDA launched its Radioactive Waste Strategy which outlined its commitment to ensuring that wastes are managed in a manner that protects people and the environment, now and in the future, and in ways that comply with government policies and provide value for money.
