Management of radioactive waste and radioactive sources

Radioactive waste: unique expertise


Nucleco is qualified – in compliance with Italian and European regulations – to collect, treat, condition and temporarily store radioactive waste and sources that derive from nuclear medicine and scientific and technological research managed by public and private bodies.

In particular, Nucleco specializes in:

- the management of national, regional or local plans for emergency operations following the discovery of radioactive material;
- the storage of low and intermediate level radioactive waste in temporary repositories and the conventional disposal of very short-lived radioactive waste after the necessary time has elapsed for its decay.

Nucleco collaborates with leading manufacturers of radiopharmaceuticals in order to minimize the volume of waste produced in diagnostic and therapeutic interventions.
