New Manchester university centre to study nuclear waste storage

A £1.2 million centre to research the decontamination and safe storage of nuclear waste is being established at the University of Manchester in partnership with Sellafield Ltd.

The aim is to complement research at Manchester’s Dalton Nuclear Institute.

The new centre will also, the university says, build on research programmes at its Centre for Radiochemistry Research and the Research Centre for Radwaste and Decommissioning.

Its remit is to develop new technologies, enhance understanding of key nuclear technologies and develop effective and sustainable decontamination approaches.

Dr Nick Bryan, of Manchester University’s School of Chemistry, said: “The new centre is an opportunity for the university to enhance its nuclear research and to strengthen its links with a vital part of the nuclear industry.

“It will form part of the Dalton Nuclear Institute, which was established to foster collaboration across conventional discipline boundaries to allow interdisciplinary approaches to nuclear research challenges.”

Over the next few years, 10 PhD students will be recruited.
