Radioactive Waste Storage Casks

High Density C0ncrete Casks for Nuclear Waste Storage
  • High level and long lived intermediate level radioactive wastes require special handling and disposal because of the high level of ongoing activity within them.

  • Special casks are designed to contain and store these materials on site where they are produced during their cooling off period, which is normally between 20 and 50 years.

  • Following this, the material can then be transported to final disposal sites in specially designed transport casks.

  • High density (heavyweight) concrete is utilized in these casks because its versatility allows for customization of mixes to meet these specifications.
