Hundreds of nuclear industry experts gathered in Cumbria for a two-day focus on managing radioactive waste.

The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority joined forces with the Nuclear Institute for the Integrated Waste Management Conference 2019.

It welcomed more than 250 industry leaders and experts from across the globe at the largest event of its kind in Europe.

The two-day gathering, held in Penrith earlier this week, saw delegates come together to learn more about progress and opportunities from integrated waste management with talks, workshops, exhibitions and panel sessions.

Speakers included Government officials, regulators, supply chain companies, consultants and waste management experts from across the NDA group.

Corhyn Parr, the NDA’s director of integrated waste management, said: “This was a rare and valuable opportunity to share learning, discuss issues and progress and to debate the opportunities around integrated waste management.

“Having leading experts from industry and academia together in one place is an important aspect in driving forward the topic of radioactive waste – which is a vital part of the NDA’s mission.”
