Conventional waste management
The great part of waste resulted from the safe maintenance and decommissioning activities of Garigliano nuclear power plant is conventional; this type of waste undergoes radiological checks and, after being proved releasable, it is removed from the site to be recovered and recycled.
This waste includes, for example, ferrous materials (pipes, valves, components and dismantled electromechanical devices) and concrete which are later sent to other productive cycles, thus minimising the quantity of waste resulted from dismantling operations.
Conventional waste management involves several actions: storage in a temporary repository, classification according to the European Waste Code (EWC), update and registration according to law and removal from the plant through authorised transport for ordinary operations of recovery or disposal.
Sogin ensures the traceability of materials, from disassembly or demolition to the recovery or disposal facility.
