With over 20 years' experience, we remove harmful material from the environment through recycling or safe disposal at approved storage facilities.
Our purpose built Permitted facility and investment in ‘high end’ equipment, means we are capable of handling and recycling any radionuclide. We offer more disposal routes than any other commercial organisation, across international boundaries, working closely with all key regulatory bodies.
Our dedicated team, with decades of experience, will guide you through the process and will manage the disposal of your materials timely and cost-effectively.
ACB operates to procedures that are monitored and reviewed, and improved where appropriate, as part of the company's management review process, and in accordance with the requirements of its management system certifications, BS EN ISO 9001 and BS EN ISO 14001.
Our customer commitment:
We draw on our extensive knowledge and experience to give you best in class customer service, dedicated to solving your problem. We work closely with the regulators and focus on adding value to our service within a flexible framework.
We take the safety of our customers and employees very seriously. Our procedures and contingency plans are regularly reviewed and monitored in accordance with BS EN ISO environmental and quality certifications.
We are continually looking for ways to improve the way we do things. Whether that is making our service more efficient, finding new methods of disposal and recycling or helping to protect our natural environment.
ACB is Permitted for both open and closed sources. Our analysts work closely with our clients to understand the activity levels of each source and the radiation emission rates to identify a tailored packaging, uplift and disposal plan.
Sealed sources may become a radioactive waste for several reasons:
The legislative requirements for the treatment of radioactive material and the disposal routes available vary depending on whether it is an open or a closed source and the state of the isotope.
ACB also has the capability to offer support and disposal or recycling options for high activity sealed sources (HASS).
Our expertise in radioactive waste management enables us to provide solutions for a wide variety of challenging waste streams from very low level waste (VLLW) through to intermediate level waste (ILW), where we can access the UK’s ILW store.
Whatever the type of waste, we can help find a solution:
Where possible, we recycle and re-use radioactive material rather than dispose of it.
ACB has numerous waste and recycling streams available, including incineration, landfill, UK repository and recycling facilities.
ACB provides expertise in green waste treatment techniques such as waste segregation, recycling and re-use of materials.
