EnergySolutions is the largest commercial processor of radioactive waste in the USA. Its facility at Bear Creek, Tennessee offers some unique opportunities for treatments to minimise waste volumes for disposal. Its fully-licensed site has been working with European clients for over 15 years. It is important to note that EnergySolutions does not dispose of radioactive wastes of non-US origin in the USA. As described below, EnergySolutions recycles metals within the nuclear industry or returns waste after processing material for volume reduction.
