SELLAFIELD'S WASTE SOLUTIONS ON DISPLAY

Thursday, April 25, 2002

Innovative solutions to some of Sellafield's nuclear waste legacy problems will be on display on Tuesday, April 30, when the Technology 2002 exhibitions opens its doors at the nuclear site to hundreds of Cumbrian visitors.

The range of new and pioneering technology on view from more than 40 high-tech companies has the potential to reduce the scale of nuclear waste management and decommissioning problems experienced not only at Sellafield but throughout the UK.

"The aim of the event is to ensure that companies which have the expertise or products to help the nuclear industry are given a platform in which they can demonstrate their abilities," said Nu-Tech Associates organiser Lisa Jones-Taylor.

"Some have new and exciting applications in the nuclear industry," she said.

Technology 2002, in the off-site Sellafield Training Centre, will be open to the public from 9.30am until 3.30pm
