Presentations and papers from the NKS-R Decommissioning Seminar 6-7/11 2013

A Nordic seminar on decommissioning of nuclear facilities took plase 6-7  November in Halden, Norway. The seminar was a NKS seminar on decommissioning and was organized by Institutt for energiteknikk (IFE), ndcon, Statens strålevern, Dansk Dekommissionering and Fortum.

Objectives

  • The objectives of the seminar were:
  • To survey international and national regulations, recommendations and guidelines for the decommissioning of nuclear facilities.
  • To exchange experience in the field of nuclear decommissioning from both completed and on-going projects, as well as the latest research and development efforts.
  • To identify gaps in current practice and regulation, and define key areas for future research and development.
  • To gather and disseminate knowledge in decommissioning, clearance and disposal of waste from decommissioning projects.

Below you may find the presentations and papers from the seminar.
