Investigating the use of graphene in nuclear decommissioning

The Nuclear Decommissioning Authority (NDA) recently published a report identifying graphene technology as a promising area that could help to deliver safe, sustainable solutions to the challenge of nuclear clean-up and waste management.

The unique properties of graphene enable its use in a wide range of applications for nuclear decommissioning. NPL has collaborated with the University of Manchester, where graphene was first isolated, and NSG Environmental Ltd, under contract to NDA, to review the potential of this material for water decontamination in nuclear power plants, sensors for radiation detectors, and as part of new composite materials to build safer and more resilient facilities.
