Radioactive waste - see our controls

Come to the Open House at Danish Decommissioning and learn about our unique environmental mission at Risø: Friday 13 June at 15-18.

D Danish Decommissioning is responsible for dismantling the former experimental facilities from the Risø Research Centre. In our temporary storage facilities, waste from 50 years of research is stored on Risø as well as construction waste from our work to dismantle and demolish the experimental plants. We are also responsible for operating the only radioactive waste receiving station in Denmark. Every year we receive 6-8 m3 of radioactive waste from hospitals, laboratories, the education sector and industry.

The radioactive waste is sorted and examined, and some items can be cleaned and, after thorough examination, released as, for example, scrap iron. Danish Decommissioning shows around the laboratories where we measure and check the radioactive waste and tells about our work on a unique environmental task. Coffee and tea will be served in the Info Centre (building 770) and we will of course be happy to answer any questions.

There will be three guided tours starting at 15:00, 16.15 and 17:30 respectively. Each tour lasts an hour and there is room for 12 in each group. Access to the Risø Peninsula will be via the gate guard from 14:30. Due to safety, it is not allowed to move around the Risø area on your own. Drive or go directly to building 770. Please note that this is about 1 km from the gate guard on Frederiksborgvej.
