Technical Information about the service

Radioactive wastes are managed either in the user’s facility or Central Disused Radioactive Sources Storage (CDRSS) of the SLAEB. Generally, short-lived radioactive material such as Iodine-131, Technitium-99m, and wastewater from hospitals (where nuclear medicine is practised) are managed on-site. The RPTSD provide technical consultancy services to design methods and facilities for the on-site management of these waste. Apart from this, for long-lived radioisotopes, the CDRSS offers long-term/permanent storage facilities until repatriation or safe disposal.

Also, for the radioactive material in category I and II, the CDRSS provides temporary storage facilities during transportation.

Charges/cost estimation process

Based on the category of the Radioactive material and the size (including the shield). Additional charges may apply based on the condition of the material
