Contamination and Waste / Proceedings of the Ninth International Conference on Tritium Science and Technology

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.
