nuclear Waste Incineration (France)


 CASE STUDY 5. Nuclear waste incineration trials 1996

Glosfume successfully provided a pilot filter to carry out various trials on nuclear waste incineration. The filter was designed to operate under vacuum and passed all of the stringent requirements of French Nuclear Fuels.

Similar filters have subsequently been used on several sites throughout France, contributing to reduced waste disposal costs and environmental quality.

This filter operated with a 500mm long ceramic element. The unit has been transported to a number of different sites and is in operation with the original elements.

As at May 2012: The filter still operates with the original elements.
