Decommissioning of final product storage buildings at the former Eurochemic reprocessing plant

Conference:

Abstract

The paper discusses the final results of a pilot decommissioning project, carried out at the former Eurochemic reprocessing plant in Dessel, Belgium. The pilot project consisted of the dismantling of two, rather small, storage buildings for final products form the reprocessing process. The aims of the project were: the verification of the assumptions made in a previous paper study on decommissioning, the demonstration and development of dismantling techniques and the training of personnel. Both buildings have been emptied and decontaminated to background levels. Monitoring for de-restriction has been carried out by the Belgoprocess Health Physics Department and has been confirmed by an independent control organization for radiation protection. Consequently, the buildings have been withdrawn from the controlled are and were demolished. Concrete debris from demolition has been removed to an industrial dumping around for inert wastes and green field conditions restored. The report deals with techniques used in the decommissioning operations, with radioactive decommissioning waste and secondary waste generation, required manpower resources and total costs of the dismantling project. (author). 10 refs, 1 tab.
