The NDA and the Nuclear Institute have partnered to produce the forthcoming Integrated Waste Management Forum 2019, the biggest event of its kind outside of the US.

Headline speakers include:

  • Stephen Speed CB, the Director for Nuclear at Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS)
  • Alan Cumming, Director of Nuclear Operations, NDA
  • Rebecca Weston FNucI, Enterprise Director, Sellafield Ltd
  • Shaun Robarts, Waste Management Director, RWM

They will join many other industry leads at Rheged in October to debate how the Nuclear Sector deal can be delivered against the UK Waste Management challenge.

As part of the Nuclear Sector Deal, the UK Industrial Strategy aims to drive down the costs of decommissioning UK nuclear sites by over 20%. Delivery will be through more effective radioactive and non-radioactive waste management, optimising lifecycle and disposal costs. The industry will need to embrace use of risk-informed approaches to waste management, encourage new thinking and better use of supply chain capability. This will enable integrated solutions and drive change.

Taking place 8-9 October at the Rheged Centre in Penrith, the Forum is set to discuss and debate how best to realise the benefits, secure opportunities and mitigate risks from a truly integrated waste management approach.

During the conference, the NDA, its site licence companies and subsidiaries will share progress made across its sites; and together with waste producers, the supply chain, academia and international partners will discuss practical solutions. Key topics include policy, strategy and regulation, with conference streams organised around: waste characterisation, retrievals, treatment and conditioning, packaging, transport, storage and UK and international disposal.
