Two new papers, published in Applied Geochemistry and the Journal of Hazardous Materials, investigate the use of Electrokinetic Remediation (EKR) and its efficiency as an in-situ technique for remediation. This first study found that the method was effective mobilising caesium and strontium in organic-rich clay soil that simulates material found in the Fukushima Exclusion Zone […]

The TRANSCEND programme
TRANSCEND is a collaborative research consortium of 11 universities and 8 industry partners. The £9.4 million EPSRC research programme comprises 40 projects which will address some of the key challenges within nuclear decommissioning and waste management.
The work of the consortium continues, rationalises and extends that previously undertaken on DISTINCTIVE with increased breadth, particularly in bringing together the academic and industrial communities to take more of a whole life cycle approach to decommissioning and waste management.
The TRANSCEND Industry Roadshow is a chance to learn about the new £9.4 million EPSRC research programme being undertaken by our consortium of universities and nuclear industry partners.
