Abstract

The EMRP project MetroDECOM was concerned with research addressing all aspects of nuclear decommissioning in order to deliver integrity and cost-effectiveness in support of clearance and disposal processes as well as improving safety and accuracy. One of the work packages was focused on the characterisation of materials present on decommissioning. Within this work package, work on scaling factors was aimed at applying the principles set out in ISO 21238:2007 to the measurement of contaminated areas in decommissioning sites. In this paper, we report the progress made under MetroDECOM in identifying decommissioning matrices of specific relevance to nuclear decommissioning within the EU and selecting priority hard-to-measure radionuclides for further study.
