The Tritium Laboratory from NIPNE, Romania has been commissioned as part of Radioisotope Research and Production Center in 1976. The Tritium Laboratory is in the refurbishment process. A project POS Priority Axis 2 and several national research projects financially support the upgrading works, which involves dismantling of the used equipment and facilities.
In this paper the preliminary refurbishment activities are described as follows:
- Radiological features for inventory of radioactive and non-radioactive wastes resulted from the cleanup activities
- Decommissioning of the used equipments (glass tritium manifolds, facility for removal of labile tritium, facilities for radio chromatographic assays and endurance tests)
- cleaning up of boxes and hoods.
The new facilities have been introduced in cleaned boxes and radiochemical hoods.
