Integrated waste management is a strategy adopted in the UK to minimise the waste arising from nuclear operations. The application of the waste hierarchy, that prioritises waste prevention, minimisation, reuse and recycle in preference to waste disposal is central to the minimisation of waste and ultimately the development of a circular economy. This paper describes the waste hierarchy approach and illustrates through examples, how R&D at NNL is supporting this approach and developing and demonstrating new technology to underpin its application to environmental restoration and clean energy programme.
