AECL and the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority renew collaboration agreement

AECL and the UK’s Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) have renewed their collaboration agreement to continue sharing best practices between the two organizations on environmental remediation, decommissioning and radioactive waste management.

The 5-year collaboration agreement was signed at the 45th Waste Management conference in Phoenix, Arizona last week by AECL President Richard Sexton and NDA Strategy Director Adrian Simper. Also in attendance was the NDA’s Chief Executive David Peattie.

The agreement will allow AECL and the NDA to continue to share technologies and experience in the management of radioactive waste and decommissioning to support both of the organizations’ aims to protect the environment.

The NDA is a non-departmental public body that aims to deliver safe, sustainable and publicly acceptable solutions to the challenge of nuclear clean-up and radioactive waste management in the UK. They are responsible for decommissioning and cleaning up the UK’s nuclear facilities and safely managing radioactive waste in the UK. For more information on the NDA visit their website.
