The Sellafield Ltd Technical Directorate is looking for one or more Universities with which it can develop ongoing links that will support its continuing long term objectives of Safe retrieval, conditioning, storage and ultimate disposal of waste sludge and Efficient Plant operation.
For the purpose of this exercise “sludge” is defined as any mixture of solid particles and liquid. At Sellafield these include both acid and alkaline systems with complex chemistry.
Sellafield Ltd is working to strengthen the technical understanding of the different types of sludge that are generated and stored on the site. Increased engagement with the wider academic community has been identified as a key part of that process and is the reason for this call for expressions of interest.
