Dismantling and clean-up of nuclear facilities is a global challenge for industries. The duration, cost and risks of such operations are highly dependent on the facilities history and the inventory of present radionuclides. These projects are significant sources of a wide range of radioactive waste, with specific societal, environmental and economic consequences. Applying a waste-led approach, the INSIDER project addresses these challenges by looking at the front end of decommissioning operations, namely pre-decommissioning characterisation.
CEA is a French government-funded technological research organisation in four main areas: low-carbon energies, defense and security, information technologies and health technologies. A prominent player in the European Research Area, it is involved in setting up collaborative projects with many partners around the world.
