7th Workshop on "Decommissioning of Installations and Site Remediation"
"Decommissioning of Installations and Site Remediation", Arnhem, The Netherlands, October 2003
The 7th EAN Workshop was devoted to decommissioning and site remediation. This was the first time that a workshop re-visited a specific topic: the 1st EAN Workshop (Saclay, 1997) was devoted to ALARA and decommissioning. The main objectives of the workshop were to provide a means of reviewing the recommendations of the first Workshop, progress made in the application of ALARA in decommissioning and the remaining needs both in the nuclear and non-nuclear sectors.
Some 60 participants from 11 European countries attended the Workshop. There were 20 oral presentations, mainly devoted to case studies of work undertaken in a variety of different situations (from accelerators and hot cells, to mineral wool (NORM) facilities and contaminated apartments). In addition to a scene setting session there were sessions on:
- Site remediation and prevention of internal exposure;
- Decommissioning of installations outside the nuclear fuel cycle;
- Effectiveness and feedback from the use of dose and dose rates estimating factors.
